Transformations of integrable hydrodynamic chains and their hydrodynamic reductions

  • M. V. PavlovEmail author


Hydrodynamic reductions of the hydrodynamic chain associated with the dispersionless limit of the 2+1-dimensional Harry-Dym equation are found by using the Miura type and reciprocal transformations applied to the Benney hydrodynamic chain.
