As an example of how to deal with nonintegrable systems, the nonlinear partial differential equation which describes the evolution of long surface waves in a convecting fluid ut + (uxxx + 6uux) + 5uux + (uxxx + 6uux)x = 0, is fully analyzed, including symmetries (nonclassical and contact transformatons),...

The Lie point symmetries associated with a number of (2 + 1)-dimensional generalizations of soliton equations are investigated. These include the Niznik Novikov Veselov equation and the breaking soliton equation, which are symmetric and asymmetric generalizations respectively of the KDV equation,...

In 1807 Fourier suggested a original method of solving partial differential equations. The method is known to lead to ordinary differential equations containing some arbitrary parameter...

A brief review is presented of the two recent perturbation algorithms. Their common idea lies in a not quite usual treatment of linear Schrödinger equations via nonlinear mathematical means. The first approach (let us call it a quasi-exact perturbation theory, QEPT) tries to get the very zero-order approximants...

Conditional symmetry We investigate conditional symmetry in three directions. The first direction is a research of the Q-conditional symmetry. The second direction is studying conditional symmetry when an algebra of invariance is known and an additional condition is unknown. The third direction is the...

Computer-aided symbolic and graphic computation allows to make significantly easier both theoretical and applied symmetry analysis of PDE. This idea is illustrated by applying a special "Mathematica" package for obtaining conditional symmetries of the nonlinear wave equation ut = (u ux)x invariant or...

We search for hidden symmetries of two-particle equations with oscillator-equivalent potential proposed by Moshinsky with collaborators. We proved that these equations admit hidden symmetries and parasupersymmetries which enable easily to find the Hamiltonian spectra using algebraic methods.

Properties of approximate symmetries of equations with a small parameter are discussed. It turns out that approximate symmetries form an approximate Lie algebra. A concept of approximate invariants is introduced and the algorithm of their calculating is proposed.

In recent years T.A. Osborn and his coworkers at the University of Manitoba have extensively developed the well known connected graph expansion and applied it to a wide variety of problems in semiclassical approximation to quantum dynamics [2, 5, 7, 19, 21, 22, 26, 27]. The work I am reporting on attempts...

The idea of introducing coordinate transformations to simplify the analytic expression of a general problem is a powerful one. Symmetry and differential equations have been close partners since the time of the founding masters, namely, Sophus Lie (18421899), and his disciples. To this days, symmetry...

The method of one parameter, point symmetric, approximate Lie group invariants is applied to the problem of determining solutions of systems of pure one-dimensional, diffusion equations. The equations are taken to be non-linear in the dependent variables but otherwise homogeneous. Moreover, the matrix...

The problem of construction of boundary conditions for nonlinear equations compatible with their higher symmetries is considered. Boundary conditions for the sineGordon, ZhiberShabat and KdV equations are discussed. New examples are found for the JS equation.

The singular manifold expansion of Weiss, Tabor and Carnevale [1] has been successfully applied to integrable ordinary and partial differential equations. They yield information such as Lax pairs, Bäcklund transformations, symmetries, recursion operators, pole dynamics, and special solutions. On the...

The different second-order nonlinear partial equations are found that are invariant under the representation D(1 2, 0) D(0, 1 2) of the Poincaré group P(1, 3) and also under conformal group C(1, 3). The some exact solutions are constructed for the one of these equations.

This report is devoted to generalization of the equivalence transformations. Let a system of differential equations be given. Almost all systems of differential equations have arbitrary elements: arbitrary functions or arbitrary constants.

The generalization of parasupersymmetric quantum mechanics generated by an arbitrary number of parasupercharges and characterized by an arbitrary order of paraquantization is given. The relations for parasuperpotentials are obtained. It is shown that parasuperpotentials can be explicitly expressed via...

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...

The transition from Eulerian to Lagrangian coordinates is a nonlocal transformation. In general, isomorphism should not take place between basic Lie groups of studied equations. Besides, in the case of plane and rotational symmetric motion hydrodynamic equations in Lagrangian coordinates are partially...

Let us consider the multidimensional nonlinear system of heat equations u0 = f(v)u; v0 = u, (1) where u = u(x) R1, v = v(x) R1, x = (x0, x) R1+3, is the Laplace operator, f(v) is an arbitrary differentiable function.

We study the general applicability of the ClarksonKruskal's direct method, which is known to be related to symmetry reduction methods, for the similarity solutions of nonlinear evolution equations (NEEs). We give a theorem that will, when satisfied, immediately simplify the reduction procedure or ansatz...
