An explicit parameterization in terms of elliptic integrals (functions) for the Mylar balloon is found which then is used to calculate various geometric quantities as well as to study all kinds of geodesics on this surface.

We investigate some classical evolution model in the discrete 2+1 space-time. A map, giving an one-step time evolution, may be derived as the compatibility condition for some systems of linear equations for a set of auxiliary linear variables. Dynamical variables for the evolution model are the coefficients...

The Yakushevich model provides a very simple pictures of DNA torsion dynamics, yet yields remarkably correct predictions on certain physical characteristics of the dynamics. In the standard Yakushevich model, the interaction between bases of a pair is modelled by a harmonic potential, which becomes anharmonic...

In this paper we investigate relations between different transformations of the slutions of the sixth Painlevé equation. We obtain nonlinear superposition formulas linking solutions by means of the Bäcklund transformation. Algebraic solutions are also studied with the help of the Bäcklund transformation.

We construct non-localized, real global solutions of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili-I eqution which vanish for x - and study their large time asymptotic behavior. We prove that such solutions eject (for t ) a train of curved asymptotic solitons which move behind the basic wave packet.

In this article, we present an explicit linearization of dynamical systems of RuijsenaarSchneider (RS) type and of the perturbations introduced by F Calogero [2] of these systems with all orbits periodic of the same period. The existence of this linearization and its algebraic nature relies on the dynamical...

In this note we describe the underlying principles — and pitfalls — of the process of non-dimensionalising and scaling the equations that model the classical problem in water waves. In particular, we introduce the two fundamental parameters (associated with amplitude and with wave length) and show how...

A depending on a complex parameter k superanalog SL of Calogero operator is costructed; it is related with the root system of the Lie superalgebra gl(n|m). For m = 0 we obtain the usual Calogero operator; for m = 1 we obtain, up to a change of indterminates and parameter k the operator constructed by...

We consider surfaces arising from integrable partial differential equations and from their deformations. Symmetries of the equation, gauge transformation of the corrsponding Lax pair and spectral parameter transformations are the deformations which lead infinitely many integrable surfaces. We also study...

The classical generation theorem of conservation laws from known ones for a system of differential equations which uses the action of a canonical LieBäcklund generator is extended to include any LieBäcklund generator. Also, it is shown that the Lie algebra of LieBäcklund symmetries of a conserved...

Type II hidden symmetries of partial differential equations () are extra symme- tries in addition to the inherited symmetries of the differential equations which arise when the number of independent and dependent variables is reduced by a Lie point symmetry. (Type I hidden symmetries arise in the increase...

We exhibit a class of Dirac operators that possess Huygens' property, i.e., the support of their fundamental solutions is precisely the light cone. This class is obtained by considering the rational solutions of the modified Korteweg-de Vries hierarchy.

The derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation is shown to be locally well-posed in a class of functions analytic on a strip around the real axis. The main feature of the result is that the width of the strip does not shrink in time. To overcome the derivative loss, Kato-type smoothing results and space-time...

Conditional symmetry We investigate conditional symmetry in three directions. The first direction is a research of the Q-conditional symmetry. The second direction is studying conditional symmetry when an algebra of invariance is known and an additional condition is unknown. The third direction is the...

A special asymptotic solution of the Painlevé-2 equation with small parameter is stdied. This solution has a critical point t corresponding to a bifurcation phenomenon. When t < t the constructed solution varies slowly and when t > t the solution oscillates very fast. We investigate the transitional...

Using the theory of self-adjoint extensions, we study the interaction model formally given by the Hamiltonian H + V (r), where H is the Aharonov-Bohm Hamiltonian and V (r) is the -type interaction potential on the cylinder of radius R . We give the mathematical definition of the model, the self-adjointness...

A necessary condition for the existence of conserved densities and fluxes of a differential-difference equation which depend on q shifts, for q sufficiently large, is presented. This condition depends on the eigenvalues of the leading terms in the differential-difference equation. It also gives, explicitly,...

In this paper we study symmetry reductions of a class of nonlinear fourth order partial differential equations utt = u + u2 xx + uuxxxx + µuxxtt + uxuxxx + u2 xx, (1) where , , , and µ are arbitrary constants. This equation may be thought of as a fourth order analogue of a generalization of the Camassa-Holm...

Painlevé equations belong to the class y +a1 y 3 +3a2 y 2 +3a3 y +a4 = 0, where ai = ai(x, y). This class of equations is invariant under the general point transformation x = (X, Y ), y = (X, Y ) and it is therefore very difficult to find out whether two equations in this class are related. We describe...

We investigate Lie symmetries of Einstein's vacuum equations in N dimensions, with a cosmological term. For this purpose, we first write down the second prolongation of the symmetry generating vector fields, and compute its action on Einstein's equations. Instead of setting to zero the coefficients of...

Noether’s theorem is used to determine first integrals admitted by a generalised Lane-Emden equation of the second kind modelling a thermal explosion. These first integrals exist for rectangular and cylindrical geometry. For rectangular geometry the first integrals show the symmetry of the temperature...

We consider the variational symmetry from the viewpoint of the non-integrability criterion towards dynamical systems. That variational symmetry can reduce complexity in determining non-integrability of general dynamical systems is illustrated here by a new non-integrability result about Hamiltonian systems...

We review the construction of Lax pairs with spectral parameter for twisted and utwisted elliptic Calogero-Moser systems defined by a general simple Lie algebra G, and the corresponding solution of N = 2 SUSY G Yang-Mills theories with a hypermultplet in the adjoint representation of G.

In this contribution, we describe the simplest, classical problem in water waves, and use this as a vehicle to outline the techniques that we adopt to analyse this particular approach to the derivation of soliton-type equations. The surprise, perhaps, is that such an apparently transparent set of equations...

The Green function for Klein-Gordon-Dirac equation is obtained. The case with the dominating Klein-Gordon term is considered. There seems to be a formal analogy between our problem and a certain problem for a 4-dimensional particle moving in the external field. The explicit relations between the wave...

The nonlinear integral equation P(x) = dyw(y)P(y)P(x + y) is investigated. It is shown that for a given function w(x) the equation admits an infinite set of polynomial solutions Pn(x). For polynomial solutions, this nonlinear integral equation reduces to a finite set of coupled linear algebraic equations...

This paper explores the quasi-deformation scheme devised in [1, 3] as applied to the simple Lie algebra sl2(F) for specific choices of the involved parameters and underlying algebras. One of the main points of this method is that the quasi-deformed algebra comes endowed with a canonical twisted Jacobi...

The Lie algebra L(h) of symmetries of a discrete analogue of the non-linear Schrödinger equation (NLS) is studied.
