Generalised symmetries of partial differential equations via complex transformations

  • D. Catalano Ferraioli (a1), G. Manno (a2) and F. Pugliese (a3)

Extract

We consider two systems of real analytic partial differential equations, related by a holomorphic contact map H. We study how the generalised symmetries of the first equation are mapped into those of the second one, and determine under which conditions on H such a map is invertible. As an application of these results, an example of physical interest is discussed.
