Reflection Symmetries of q-Bernoulli Polynomials

Boris A. Kupershmidt
Pages: 412 - 422
A large part of the theory of classical Bernoulli polynomials Bn(x)'s follows from their reflection symmetry around x = 1/2: Bn(1 - x) = (-1)n Bn(x). This symmetry not only survives quantization but has two equivalent forms, classical and quantum, depending upon whether one reflects around 1/2 the classical...

In the recent paper by one of the authors (MBS) and A. A. Malykh on the classification of second-order PDEs with four independent variables that possess partner symmetries [1], mixed heavenly equation and Husain equation appear as closely related canonical equations admitting partner symmetries.

Hierarchies of q-discrete Painlevé equations

Huda Alrashdi, Nalini Joshi, Dinh Thi Tran
Pages: 453 - 477
In this paper, we construct a new hierarchy based on the third q-discrete Painlevé equation (qPIII) and also study the hierarchy of the second q-discrete Painlevé equation (qPII). Both hierarchies are derived by using reductions of the general lattice modified Korteweg-de Vries equation. Our results...

A. Krylovas, R. Ciegis
Pages: 458 - 470
An averaging method for getting uniformly valid asymptotic approximations of the solution of hyperbolic systems of equations is presented. The averaged system of equtions disintegrates into independent equations for non-resonance systems. We consider the resonance conditions for some classes of solutions....

A.A. Borghardt, D.Ya. Karpenko, N.Yu. Nosenko
Pages: 458 - 463
Fundamental solutions (FS) with a given boundary condition on the characteristics of relativistic problems with axial symmetry are considered. This is so-called the Goursat problem (GP) or zero plane formalism in Dirac's terminology, or modification of the proper time method in the Fock-Nambu-Schwinger...

Integration of the stochastic logistic equation via symmetry analysis

Giuseppe Gaeta
Pages: 454 - 467
We apply the recently developed theory of symmetry of stochastic differential equations to a stochastic version of the logistic equation, obtaining an explicit integration, i.e. an explicit formula for the process in terms of any single realization of the driving Wiener process.

Junchao Chen, Yong Chen
Pages: 454 - 472
In this paper, nonlocal symmetry of the (2+1) dimensional modified generalized long dispersive wave system and its applications are investigated. The nonlocal symmetry related to the eigenfunctions in Lax pairs is derived, and infinitely many nonlocal symmetries are obtained. By introducing three potentials,...

In this paper, we consider linearizability and orbital linearizability properties of the Lotka–Volterra system in the neighborhood of a singular point with eigenvalues 1 and -q. In this paper we give the explicit smooth near-identity change of variables that linearizes or orbital linearizes such Lotka–Volterra...

Periodic Traveling Water Waves with Isobaric Streamlines

Henrik Kalisch
Pages: 461 - 471
It is shown that in water of finite depth, there are no periodic traveling waves with the property that the pressure in the underlying fluid flow is constant along streamlines. In the case of infinite depth, there is only one such solution, which is due to Gerstner.

On the Integrability of a Class of Nonlinear Dispersive Wave Equations

Pages: 462 - 468
We investigate the integrability of a class of 1+1 dimensional models describing nolinear dispersive waves in continuous media, e.g. cylindrical compressible hyperelastic rods, shallow water waves, etc. The only completely integrable cases coincide with the Camassa-Holm and Degasperis-Procesi equations.

Mode-Coupling and Nonlinear Landau Damping Effects in Auroral Farley-Buneman Turbulence

A.M. Hamza
Pages: 462 - 470
The fundamental problem of Farley-Buneman turbulence in the auroral E-region has been discussed and debated extensively in the past two decades. In the present paper we intend to clarify the different steps that the auroral E-region plasma has to undergo before reaching a steady state. The mode-coupling...

Partial integrability of the anharmonic oscillator

Robert Conte
Pages: 462 - 473
We consider the anharmonic oscillator with an arbitrary-degree anharmonicity, a damping term and a forcing term, all coefficients being time-dependent: u ′′ + g1 (x)u ′ + g2 (x)u + g3 (x)u n + g4 (x) = 0, n real. Its physical applications range from the atomic Thomas-Fermi model to Emden gas dynamics...

On the Application of a Generalized Version of the Dressing Method to the Integration of Variable Coefficient N-Coupled Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation

Ting Su, Huihui Dai, Xian Guo Geng
Pages: 458 - 476
N-coupled nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations have been proposed to describe N-pulse simultaneous propagation in optical fibers. When the fiber is nonuniform, N-coupled variable-coefficient NLS equations can arise. In this paper, a family of N-coupled integrable variable-coefficient NLS equations are...

Helicoidal Peyrard–Bishop Model of DNA Dynamics*

Slobodan Zdravković
Pages: 463 - 484
A nonlinear model describing DNA dynamics, called helicoidal Peyrard–Bishop model, is described. It is shown that the model can explain a local opening of a DNA helix during transcription. An impact of friction forces is also studied. It is pointed out that a role of viscosity is crucial for DNA-RNA...

Quaternionic Integrability

Giuseppe Gaeta
Pages: 461 - 474
Standard (Arnold–Liouville) integrable systems are intimately related to complex rotations. One can define a generalization of these, sharing many of their properties, where complex rotations are replaced by quaternionic ones, and more generally by the action of a Clifford group. Such a generalization...

We construct a Lax operator for the G2-Calogero-Moser model by means of a double reduction procedure. In the first reduction step we reduce the A6-model to a Bmodel with the help of an embedding of the B3-root system into the A6-root system together with the specification of certain coupling constants....
