Symmetries and Nonlinear Phenomena: Proceedings of the International School on Applied Mathematics - Paipa, Colombia, 22 - 26 February 1988 (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
Starting from Sophus Lie, the invariance of a differential equation under its continuous group of symmetries has become a major tool for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, in particular, nonlinear ones. The proceedings focus on the application of these techniques to nonlinear partial differential equations. The state of the art in this field is presented clearly in a series of comprehensive lectures. Several lectures on applications point out the physical importance of such methods.
