Classical and nonclassical symmetries for the Krichever-Novikov equation



We study the Krichever-Novikov equation from the standpoint of the theory of symmetry reductions in partial differential equations. We obtain a Lie group classification. Moreover, we obtain some exact solutions, and we apply the nonclassical method.
