- A birational transformation is one which leaves invariant an ordinary differential eqution, only changing its parameters. We first recall the consistent truncation which has allowed us to obtain the first degree birational transformation of Okamoto for the mater Painlevé equation P6. Then we improve it by adding a preliminary step, which is to find all the Riccati subequations of the considered Pn before performing the truncation. We discuss in some detail the main novelties of our method, taking as an example the simplest Painlevé equation for that purpose, P2. Finally, we apply the method to P5 and obtain its two inequivalent first degree birational transformations.
