Some recent developments in symmetries and conservation laws for PDEs. Part V


Abstract:In Part V, we show how one can use a symmetry (discrete or continuous) of a given PDE system to map a given conservation law into another conservation law--in particular, a recently found simple and explicit formula will be presented. In addition, we show how one can use symmetries and conservation laws to determine whether a given nonlinear PDE system can be invertibly mapped to a linear PDE system and also show how to find such a mapping when it exists.
