Introductory Treatise on Lie's Theory of Finite Continuous Transformation Groups

  title={Introductory Treatise on Lie's Theory of Finite Continuous Transformation Groups},
  author={H. F. B.},
THE theory of continuous groups should appeal to all who are interested in mathematics; it is based on the fundamental ideas involved in cases of change of the algebraic notation, and as such is an illuminating synthesis of a large number of our elementary operations; and the principal notions of the theory, once laid bare, are so simple and admit of so many familiar applications that these should form an integral part of elementary teaching, particularly in analytical geometry and differential…

Poincaré and the idea of a group
In many different fields of mathematics and physics Poincare found many uses for the idea of a group, but not for group theory. He used the idea in his work on automorphic functions, in number
Poincaré and complex function theory
Poincare is still well known for the mathematical work that first made his name : his discovery in 1880--1881 of automorphic functions. New documents and insights were added in [Gray and Walter

Abstract Let G be a connected finite-dimensional Lie group and M a compact surface. We investigate whether, for a given G and M, every continuous action of G on M must have a fixed (stationary)
Self-Invariant Contact Symmetries
Abstract Every smooth second-order scalar ordinary differential equation (ODE) that is solved for the highest derivative has an infinite-dimensional Lie group of contact symmetries. However,
Realizations of the Witt and Virasoro Algebras and Integrable Equations
In this paper we study realizations of infinite-dimensional Witt and Virasoro algebras. We obtain a complete description of realizations of the Witt algebra by Lie vector fields of first-order
Practical Guide to the Symbolic Computation of Symmetries of Differential Equations
A computational approach to finding symmetries and computer algebra programs to compute the usually very large system of determining partial differential equations and a computer algebra algorithm that at least automatically solves most of these equations and in simple cases provides a complete solution.
On realizations of the Witt algebra in $\mathbb{R}^3$
We obtain exhaustive classification of inequivalent realizations of the Witt and Virasoro algebras by Lie vector fields of differential operators in the space $\mathbb{R}^3$. Using this

Image analysis by wavelet-type transforms: Group theoretic approach
A group theoretic approach to image representation and analysis and the concept of a wavelet transform is extended to incorporate different types of groups to find the invariance measure for the admissibility condition of a mother wavelet-type transform.
