These \(\mathcal {C}\)-differential operators are somewhat dual (see Remark 11.1 below) to recursion operators for symmetries considered in Sect.  7. They send cosymmetries of an equation \(\mathcal {E}\) to themselves. (Actually, recursion operators for cosymmetries take solutions of the equation \(\tilde {\ell }_{\mathcal {E}}^*(\psi )=0\) in some covering over \(\mathcal {E}\), i.e. shadows of cosymmetries, to objects of the same nature.) Though these operators are not so popular in applications as their symmetry counterparts, we expose briefly our approach to compute them. In this chapter we give the solution to Problems  1.27 and  1.28.
