    Dyson-Schwinger equations are integral equations in quantum field theory that describe the Green functions of a theory and mirror the recursive decomposition of Feynman diagrams into subdiagrams. Taken as recursive equations, the Dyson-Schwinger equations describe perturbative quantum field theory. However, they also contain non-perturbative information.

    Using the Hopf algebra of Feynman graphs the author follows a sequence of reductions to convert the Dyson-Schwinger equations to a new system of differential equations.
