The determinant representation of an N-fold Darboux transformation for the short pulse equation

Shuzhi Liu, Lihong Wang, Wei Liu, Deqin Qiu, Jingsong He
Pages: 183 - 194
We present an explicit representation of an N-fold Darboux transformation T̃N for the short pulse equation, by the determinants of the eigenfunctions of its Lax pair. In the course of the derivation of T̃N, we show that the quasi-determinant is avoidable, and it is contrast to a recent paper (J. Phys....

Canonical Analysis of Symmetry Enhancement with Gauged Grassmannian Model

Sang-Ok Hahn, Phillial Oh, Cheonsoo Park, Sunyoung Shin
Pages: 185 - 190
We study the Hamiltonian structure of the gauge symmetry breaking and enhancment. After giving a general discussion of these phenomena in terms of the constrained phase space, we perform a canonical analysis of the Grassmannian nonlinear sigma model coupled with Chern-Simons term, which contains a free...

Nonclassical Potential System Approach for a Nonlinear Diffusion Equation

M.L. Gandarias, M.S. Bruzon
Pages: 185 - 196
In this paper we consider a class of equations that model diffusion. For some of these equations nonclassical potential symmetries are derived by using a modified system approach. These symmetries allow us to increase the number of exact known solutions. These solutions are unobtainable from classical...

Second-Order Differential Invariants for Some Extensions of the Poincaré Group and Invariant Equations

Irina Yehorchenko
Pages: 186 - 195
It is well-known that symmetry properties are extremely important for choosing differential equations which can be suitable for description of real physical processes. We present functional bases of second-order differential invariants for various representations of some extensions of the Poincaré group...

Solitary waves in helicoidal models of DNA dynamics

Giuseppe Gaeta, Laura Venier
Pages: 186 - 204
We analyze travelling solitary wave solutions in the Barbi-Cocco-Peyrard and in a simplified version of the Cocco-Monasson models of nonlinear DNA dynamics. We identify conditions to be satisfied by parameters for such solutions to exist, and provide first order ODEs whose solutions give the required...

The Lie symmetry group of the general Liénard-type equation

Ágota Figula, Gábor Horváth, Tamás Milkovszki, Zoltán Muzsnay
Pages: 185 - 198
We consider the general Liénard-type equation u¨=∑k=0nfku˙k for n ≥ 4. This equation naturally admits the Lie symmetry ∂∂t. We completely characterize when this equation admits another Lie symmetry, and give an easily verifiable condition for this on the functions f0,..., fn. Moreover, we give an equivalent...

Torsional Travelling Waves in DNA

Tomasz Lipniacki
Pages: 188 - 194
The simple model of the non-linear DNA dynamics [4] is pursued in order to study the local untwisting of DNA double helix. It is shown how the advancing RNA polymerase may force the motion of the torsional solitary wave along DNA.

A multidimensional superposition principle: numerical simulation and analysis of soliton invariant manifolds I

Alexander A. Alexeyev
Pages: 188 - 229
In the framework of a multidimensional superposition principle involving an analytical approach to nonlinear PDEs, a numerical technique for the analysis of soliton invari- ant manifolds is developed. This experimental methodology is based on the use of computer simulation data of soliton–perturbation...

Coisotropic quasi-periodic motions for a constrained system of rigid bodies

Ihor Parasyuk
Pages: 189 - 201
We consider a constrained system of four rigid bodies located in axisymmetric potential and gyroscopic force fields and interacting by means of angular velocities. We describe an integrable case (not in Liouville sence!) when 12-dimensional phase space of the above system is fibered by the coisotropic...

Generalized Solvable Structures and First Integrals for ODEs Admitting an 𝔰𝔩(2, ℝ) Symmetry Algebra

Paola Morando, Concepción Muriel, Adrián Ruiz
Pages: 188 - 201
The notion of solvable structure is generalized in order to exploit the presence of an 𝔰𝔩(2, ℝ) algebra of symmetries for a kth-order ordinary differential equation ℰ with k > 3. In this setting, the knowledge of a generalized solvable structure for ℰ allows us to reduce ℰ to a family of second-order...

Nonlocal symmetries of Plebański’s second heavenly equation

Aleksandra Lelito, Oleg I. Morozov
Pages: 188 - 197
We study nonlocal symmetries of Plebański’s second heavenly equation in an infinite-dimensional covering associated to a Lax pair with a non-removable spectral parameter. We show that all local symmetries of the equation admit lifts to full-fledged nonlocal symmetries in the infinite-dimensional covering....

Pages: 188 - 213
We associate Hamiltonian homological evolutionary vector fields – which are the non-Abelian variational Lie algebroids’ differentials – with Lie algebra-valued zero-curvature representations for partial differential equations.

In this paper we study Lie symmetries, Kac-Moody-Virasoro algebras, similarity reductions and particular solutions of two different recently introduced (2+1)-dimensional nonlinear evolution equations, namely (i) (2+1)-dimensional breaking soliton equation and (ii) (2+1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger...

Pages: 190 - 194
Solutions of the Schrödinger equation for a particle with a tensor-like mass are considered. It is shown that the problem of determination of the coherent states in this case is reduced to integration of the nonlinear system of ordinary differential equations.

Novel solvable many-body problems

Oksana Bihun, Francesco Calogero
Pages: 190 - 212
Novel classes of dynamical systems are introduced, including many-body problems characterized by nonlinear equations of motion of Newtonian type (“acceleration equals forces”) which determine the motion of points in the complex plane. These models are solvable, namely their configuration at any time can...
