Symmetries of differential equations in mathematical physics

Mathematical Physics
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 50)

Abstract

As a conclusion we present a table listing the differential equations which have been studied from the point of view of symmetry groups and separation of variables along with the relevant references to the literature. It should also be mentioned that there is a forthcoming book on the subject of symmetries and separation of variables by W. Miller, Jr.

Keywords

Symmetry Group Separable System Anharmonic Oscillator Linear Potential Separable Solution 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
