 DysonSchwinger 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 DysonSchwinger equations describe perturbative quantum field theory. However, they also contain nonperturbative information. Using the Hopf algebra of Feynman graphs the author follows a sequence of reductions to convert the DysonSchwinger equations to a new system of differential equations. Table of Contents  Introduction
