Various solutions are displayed and analyzed (both analytically and numerically) of a recently-introduced many-body problem in the plane which includes both integrable and nonintegrable cases (depending on the values of the coupling constants); in paticular the origin of certain periodic behaviors is...

Functional Representation of the Ablowitz­Ladik Hierarchy. II

V.E. Vekslerchik
Pages: 157 - 180
In this paper we continue studies of the functional representation of the Ablowitz­ Ladik hierarchy (ALH). Using formal series solutions of the zero-curvature condition we rederive the functional equations for the tau-functions of the ALH and obtain some new equations which provide more straightforward...

The Maupertuis Principle and Canonical Transformations of the Extended Phase Space

A.V. Tsiganov
Pages: 157 - 182
We discuss some special classes of canonical transformations of the extended phase space, which relate integrable systems with a common Lagrangian submanifold. Vrious parametric forms of trajectories are associated with different integrals of motion, Lax equations, separated variables and action-angles...

Approximate Lie symmetries of the Navier-Stokes equations

V.N. Grebenev, M. Oberlack
Pages: 157 - 163
In the framework of the theory of approximate transformation groups proposed by Baikov, Gaziziv and Ibragimov [1], the first-order approximate symmetry operator is calculated for the Navier-Stokes equations. The symmetries of the coupled system obtained by expanding the dependent variables of the Navier-Stokes...

Fiber Bundle Description of Flow and Nonlinear Hydrodynamics on Circles

Andrei Ludu
Pages: 157 - 170
We introduce a differential geometry description of the path lines, stream lines and particles contours in hydrodynamics. We present a generalized form of a Korteweg-de Vries type of equation for the exterior of a circle. Nonlinearities from the boundary conditions, surface tension and the Euler equations...

A Novel Riccati Sequence

P. G. L. Leach, N. Euler
Pages: 157 - 164
Hierarchies of evolution partial differential equations have become well-established in the literature over the last thirty years. More recently sequences of ordinary differential equations have been introduced. Of these perhaps the most notable is the Riccati Sequence which has beautiful singularity,...

The heptagon-wheel cocycle in the Kontsevich graph complex

Ricardo Buring, Arthemy V. Kiselev, Nina J. Rutten
Pages: 157 - 173
The real vector space of non-oriented graphs is known to carry a differential graded Lie algebra structure. Cocycles in the Kontsevich graph complex, expressed using formal sums of graphs on n vertices and 2n − 2 edges, induce – under the orientation mapping – infinitesimal symmetries of classical Poisson...

Note on the evolution of compactly supported initial data under the Camassa-Holm flow

Enrique Loubet
Pages: 158 - 162
We clarify and extend some remarks raised in [5] [Constantin A, J. Math. Phys. 46 (2005), 023506] about the evolution of compactly supported initial data under the Camassa-Holm flow.

Internal Gravity Waves with Free Upper Surface Over an Obstacle

M.B. Abd-El-Malek, A.H. Tewfick
Pages: 158 - 171
In this paper we discuss a theoretical model for both the free-surface and interfacial profiles of progressive nonlinear waves which result from introducing an obstacle of finite height, in the form of a ramp of gentle slope, attached to the bottom below the flow of a stratified, ideal, two-layer fluid....

Conservation Laws and optimal system of extended quantum Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation

Yao-Lin Jiang, Yi Lu, Cheng Chen
Pages: 157 - 166
In this paper, the (2+1)-dimensional extended quantum Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation is further explored. The equation is shown to be self-adjoint and conserved vector is constructed according to the related theorem. Then the corresponding optimal system of one-dimensional subgroups is determined. Similarity...

What is the Velocity of the Electromagnetic Field?

Wilhelm Fushchych
Pages: 159 - 161
A new definition for the electromagnetic field velocity is proposed. The velocity depends on the physical fields. The question posed by the title of this paper is, surprisingly, not yet answered uniquely today; not even by way of definition. According to modern assumptions the light is the electromagnetic...

A Note on the Integrability of a Class of Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations

Sibusiso Moyo, P. G. L. Leach
Pages: 159 - 164
We study the integrability properties of the hierarchy of a class of nonlinear ordinary differential equations and point out some of the properties of these equations and their connection to the Ermakov-Pinney equation.

Diophantine Properties Associated to the Equilibrium Configurations of an Isochronous N-Body Problem

Oksana Bihun, Francesco Calogero, Ge Yi
Pages: 158 - 178
Recently a solvable N-body problem featuring several free parameters has been investigated, and conditions on these parameters have been identified which guarantee that this system is isochronous (all its solutions are periodic with a fixed period) and that it possesses equilibria. The N coordinates...

Boris Kruglikov
Pages: 158 - 181
In this paper we investigate compatible overdetermined systems of PDEs on the plane with one common characteristic. Lie's theorem states that its integration is equivalent to a system of ODEs, and we give a new proof by relating it to the geometry of rank 2 distributions. We find a criterion for...

Pages: 159 - 166
Novikov super-algebras are related to quadratic conformal super-algebras which correspond to Hamiltonian pairs and play fundamental role in completely integrable systems. In this paper, we focus on quadratic Novikov super-algebras, which are Novikov super-algebras with associative non-degenerate super-symmetric...

Nonlinear Gauge Transformation for a Quantum System Obeying an Exclusion-Inclusion Principle

G. Kaniadakis, A. Lavagno, P. Quarati, A.M. Scarfone
Pages: 161 - 165
We introduce a nonlinear and noncanonical gauge transformation which allows the rduction of a complex nonlinearity, contained in a Schrödinger equation, into a real one. This Schrödinger equation describes a canonical system, whose kinetics is governed by a generalized Exclusion-Inclusion Principle....
