A Multidimensional Nonautonomous Equation Containing a Product of Powers of Partial Derivatives

  • I. V. RakhmelevichEmail author


A class of multidimensional differential equations containing products of powers of partial derivatives of any order is considered. Solutions with additive, multiplicative, and combined separation of variables are obtained. A family of pseudopolynomial solutions expressed in terms of polynomials in independent variables with arbitrary coefficients and functions being solutions of certain ordinary differential equations is also obtained. Solutions of the type of traveling wave and self-similar solutions, as well as families of solutions having the form of a sum or a product of solutions of the type of a traveling wave and self-similar solutions, are found. Finally, solutions that can be represented as functions of more complicated arguments expressed in terms of linear combinations and products of the initial independent variables are found. For all of the obtained solutions, conditions on the righthand side of the equation and its parameters under which these solutions exist are determined.
