For several classes of second order dispersionless PDEs, we show that the symbols of their formal linearizations define conformal structures which must be Einstein-Weyl in 3D (or self-dual in 4D) if and only if the PDE is integrable by the method of hydrodynamic reductions. This demonstrates that the integrability of these dispersionless PDEs can be seen from the geometry of their formal linearizations. 

Dispersionless integrable systems and the Bogomolny equations on an Einstein–Weyl geometry background

We derive a dispersionless integrable system describing a local form of a general three-dimensional Einstein-Weyl geometry with an Euclidean (positive) signature, construct its matrix extension and

On the Einstein-Weyl and conformal self-duality equations

The equations governing anti-self-dual and Einstein-Weyl conformal geometries can be regarded as `master dispersionless systems' in four and three dimensions respectively. Their integrability by

Integrable Dispersionless PDEs in 4D, Their Symmetry Pseudogroups and Deformations

We study integrable non-degenerate Monge–Ampère equations of Hirota type in 4D and demonstrate that their symmetry algebras have a distinguished graded structure, uniquely determining those

Integrability via Geometry: Dispersionless Differential Equations in Three and Four Dimensions

We prove that the existence of a dispersionless Lax pair with spectral parameter for a nondegenerate hyperbolic second order partial differential equation (PDE) is equivalent to the canonical

Abstract We exploit the correspondence between the three–dimensional Lorentzian Einstein–Weyl geometries of the hyper–CR type and the Veronese webs to show that the former structures are locally

Dispersionless (3+1)-dimensional integrable hierarchies

A multi-dimensional version of the R-matrix approach to the construction of integrable hierarchies of (3+1)-dimensional dispersionless systems of the type recently introduced in Sergyeyev.

Characteristic integrals in 3D and linear degeneracy

Conservation laws vanishing along characteristic directions of a given system of PDEs are known as characteristic conservation laws, or characteristic integrals. In 2D, they play an important role in



An interpolating dispersionless integrable system

We introduce a dispersionless integrable system which interpolates between the dispersionless Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation and the hyper-CR equation. The interpolating system arises as a symmetry

Integrable Equations of the Dispersionless Hirota type and Hypersurfaces in the Lagrangian Grassmannian

We investigate integrable second-order equations of the formwhich typically arise as the Hirota-type relations for various (2 + 1)-dimensional dispersionless hierarchies. Familiar examples include

Non-Hamiltonian generalizations of the dispersionless 2DTL hierarchy

We consider two-component integrable generalizations of the dispersionless two-dimensional Toda lattice (2DTL) hierarchy connected with non-Hamiltonian vector fields, similar to the Manakov–Santini

Local Constraints on Einstein–Weyl Geometries: The 3-Dimensional Case

Following an earlier study [3], we consider the Einstein–Weyl equations on a fixed (complex) background metric as an equation for a 1-form and its first few derivatives. If the background is flat

Einstein-Weyl spaces and SU(∞) Toda fields

The Einstein-Weyl equations in 2+1 dimensions contain, as a special class, the Toda field equations for the group SU( infinity ). A family of solutions belonging to this class, and depending on an

Hydrodynamic reductions of the heavenly equation

We demonstrate that Plebanski's first heavenly equation decouples in infinitely many ways into a triple of commuting (1 + 1)-dimensional systems of hydrodynamic type which satisfy the Egorov
