Symmetry Analysis of Partial Differential Equations

  1. Feb 4, 2005 #1
    I'm currently taking a symmetry analysis course. It is really interesting. I would recommend it to any math major or anyone interested in ODE's and PDE'S. I am enjoying it very much.

    is that anything like that "differential galois theory" where you look st symmetries in differential equations?

    I almost feel sorry that ever since Emmy Noether discovered the theorem in 1918,we physicists like to take a look at symmetries related to physical phenomena (and Lagrange & Hamilton actions & functions),and not to symmetries of PDE-s... :rolleyes: :tongue2:

    Would you kindly briefly explain what this is? I'm interested in differential equations.

    This course is symmetry of PDE's

    Sorry I'm unfamiliar with "differential galois therory"
