D-algebraic power series


In this paper, we study power series in several variables, which are completely determined as solutions of sets of differential equations with initial conditions. We introduce a large class of such power series, which we call “D-algebraic”. We prove several closure properties for this class and give an effective zero test for D-algebraic series.
