A (2+1)-dimensional perturbed KdV equation, recently introduced by W.X. Ma and B. Fuchssteiner, is proven to pass the Painlevé test for integrability well, and its 4×4 Lax pair with two spectral parameters is found. The results show that the Painlevé classification of coupled KdV equations by A. Karasu...

Similarity reductions and new exact solutions are obtained for a nonlinear diffusion equation. These are obtained by using the classical symmetry group and reducing the partial differential equation to various ordinary differential equations. For the equations so obtained, first integrals are deduced...

A solvable many-body problem in the plane is exhibited. It is characterized by rotation-invariant Newtonian ("acceleration equal force") equations of motion, featuring one-body ("external") and pair ("interparticle") forces. The former depend quadratically on the velocity, and nonlinearly on the coordinate,...

We use isomorphism between matrix algebras and simple orthogonal Clifford algebras C (Q) to compute matrix exponential eA of a real, complex, and quaternionic matrix A. The isomorphic image p = (A) in C (Q), where the quadratic form Q has a suitable signature (p, q), is exponentiated modulo a minimal...

The concept of the theory of continuous groups of transformations has attracted the attention of applied mathematicians and engineers to solve many physical problems in the engineering sciences. Three applications are presented in this paper. The first one is the problem of time-dependent vertical...
