Symmetries of Ordinary Differential Equations

  • Gerd Baumann

Abstract

Let us start with the following question. Suppose you have to solve an ordinary differential equation of second order like
$$\begin{gathered} equation1 = {\partial _{(x,2)}}u[x]\left( {x - u[x]} \right){\partial _x}u[x] = = 0; \hfill \\ equation1//LieTradionalForm \hfill \\ - ( - u + x){u_x} + {u_{x,x}} = = 0 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} $$
