A Method for Computing Symmetries and Conservation Laws of Integro-Differential Equations

  • V. N. Chetverikov
  • A. G. Kudryavtsev


A method for computing symmetries and conservation laws of integro-differential equations is proposed. It resides in reducing an integro-differential equation to a system of boundary differential equations and in computing symmetries and conservation laws of this system. A geometry of boundary differential equations is constructed like the differential case. Results of the computation for the Smoluchowski’s coagulation equation are given.
