In this contribution we review and summarize recent articles on a family of nonlinear Schrödinger equations proposed by G.A. Goldin and one of us (HDD) [J. Phys. A. 27, 1994, 1771­1780], dealing with a gauge description of the family, a classification of its Lie symmetries in terms of gauge invariants...

Solvable and/or Integrable and/or Linearizable N-Body Problems in Ordinary (Three-Dimensional) Space. I

M. Bruschi, F. Calogero
Pages: 303 - 386
Several N -body problems in ordinary (3-dimensional) space are introduced which are characterized by Newtonian equations of motion ("acceleration equal force;" in most cases, the forces are velocity-dependent) and are amenable to exact treatment ("solable" and/or "integrable" and/or "linearizable")....

Billiard Algebra, Integrable Line Congruences, and Double Reflection Nets

Vladimir Dragović, Milena Radnović
Pages: 300 - 317
Billiard systems within quadrics, playing the role of discrete analogues of geodesics on ellipsoids, are incorporated into the theory of integrable quad-graphs. An initial observation is that the Six-pointed star theorem, as the operational consistency for the billiard algebra, is equivalent to an integrability...

A Solvable N-body Problem of Goldfish Type Featuring N2 Arbitrary Coupling Constants

Francesco Calogero
Pages: 300 - 305
A N-body problem “of goldfish type” is introduced, the Newtonian (“acceleration equal force”) equations of motion of which describe the motion of N pointlike unit-mass particles moving in the complex z-plane. The model—for arbitrary N—is solvable, namely its configuration (positions and velocities of...

Stability Analysis of Some Integrable Euler Equations for SO(n)

L. Fehér, I. Marshall
Pages: 304 - 317
A family of special cases of the integrable Euler equations on so(n) introduced by Manakov in 1976 is considered. The equilibrium points are found and their stability is studied. Heteroclinic orbits are constructed that connect unstable equilibria and are given by the orbits of certain 1-parameter subgroups...

Jacobi's Last Multiplier and the Complete Symmetry Group of the Ermakov-Pinney Equation

M.C. Nucci, P.G.L. Leach
Pages: 305 - 320
The Ermakov-Pinney equation possesses three Lie point symmetries with the algebra sl(2, R). This algebra does not provide a representation of the complete symmetry group of the Ermakov-Pinney equation. We show how the representation of the group can be obtained with the use of the method described in...

Dynamics of Soliton-Like Excitations in a Chain of a Polymer Crystal: Influence of Neighbouring Chains Mobility

Elena A. Zubova, N.K. Balabaev
Pages: 305 - 311
We investigate influence of mobility of neighbouring chains on dynamics of soliton-like excitations in a chain of the simplest polymer crystal (polyethylene in the "united atoms" approximation) using molecular dynamics simulation. We present results for point-like structural defects: static and moving...

Multipotentializations and nonlocal symmetries: Kupershmidt, Kaup-Kupershmidt and Sawada-Kotera equations

Marianna Euler, Norbert Euler, Enrique G Reyes
Pages: 303 - 314
In this letter we report a new invariant for the Sawada-Kotera equation that is obtained by a systematic potentialization of the Kupershmidt equation. We show that this result can be derived from nonlocal symmetries and that, conversely, a previously known invariant of the Kaup-Kupershmidt equation can...

A New Case of Separability in a Quartic Hénon-Heiles System

Nicola Sottocornola
Pages: 303 - 308
There are four quartic integrable Hénon-Heiles systems. Only one of them has been separated in the generic form while the other three have been solved only for particular values of the constants. We consider two of them, related by a canonical transformation, and we give their separation coordinates...

In this paper, we construct Darboux transformations of the supersymmetric BKP(SBKP) hierarchy. These Darboux transformations can generate new solutions from seed solutions by using bosonic eigenfunctions.

Transformation Properties of x'' + f_1(t)x' + f2(t)x + f3(t)x^n = 0

Norbert Euler
Pages: 310 - 337
In this paper, we consider a general anharmonic oscillator of the form ¨x + f1(t) x + f2(t)x+f3(t)xn = 0, with n Q. We seek the most general conditions on the functions f1, f2 and f3, by which the equation may be integrable, as well as conditions for the existence of Lie point symmetries. Time-dependent...

The Sato Grassmannian and the CH Hierarchy

Gregorio Falqui, Giovanni Ortenzi
Pages: 310 - 322
We discuss how the Camassa-Holm hierarchy can be framed within the geometry of the Sato Grassmannian. We discuss the geometry of an extension of the negative flows of the CH hierarchy, recover the well-known CH equations, and frame the problem within the theory of pseudo-differential operators.

Bounds for the Threshold Amplitude for Plane Couette Flow

Mattias Liefvendahl, Gunilla Kreiss
Pages: 311 - 324
We prove nonlinear stability for finite amplitude perturbations of plane Couette flow. A bound of the solution of the resolvent equation in the unstable complex half-plane is used to estimate the solution of the full nonlinear problem. The result is a lower bound, including Reynolds number dependence,...

A Symmetry Connection Between Hyperbolic and Parabolic Equations

Peter Basarab-Horwath
Pages: 311 - 318
We give ansatzes obtained from Lie symmetries of some hyperbolic equations which reduce these equations to the heat or Schrödinger equations. This enables us to construct new solutions of the hyperbolic equations using the Lie and conditional symmetries of the parabolic equations. Moreover, we note that...

We describe the physical hypothesis in which an approximate model of water waves is obtained. For an irrotational unidirectional shallow water flow, we derive the Camassa- Holm equation by a variational approach in the Lagrangian formalism.
