B . 7 Lie Groups and Differential Equations


The applications of Lie groups to solve differential equations dates back to the original work of Sophus Lie, who invented Lie groups for this purpose. The modern era begins with Birkhoff (1950), and was forged into a key tool of applied mathematics by Ovsiannikov (1982). Basic references are (Hydon, 2000; Olver, 1993, 1995). First we review the geometric… (More)
