In 1887, Hölder proved that the Gamma function, defined by the difference equation y(x+1) = x y(x), satisfies no nonzero polynomial differential equation with complex coefficients. In this talk I will describe a Galois theory that allows one to reprove this result and as well as new results concerning solutions of higher order difference equations.
