Symmetries, Conservation Laws, and Noether's Theorem for Differential‐Difference Equations

This paper mainly contributes to the extension of Noether's theorem to differential‐difference equations. For this purpose, we first investigate the prolongation formula for continuous symmetries,

In this paper, we propose a modified formal Lagrangian formulation by introducing dummy dependent variables and prove the existence of such a formulation for any system of differential equations. The



Nonlinear self-adjointness and conservation laws

The general concept of nonlinear self-adjointness of differential equations is introduced. It includes the linear self-adjointness as a particular case. Moreover, it embraces the strict

Characteristics of Conservation Laws for Difference Equations

The converse of Noether’s Theorem for difference equations is established, the conservation laws in the infinite family generated by Rasin and Schiff are distinct, and all five-point conservation laws for the potential Lotka–Volterra equation are obtained.

Relations between symmetries and conservation laws for difference systems

This paper presents a relation between divergence variational symmetries for difference variational problems on lattices and conservation laws for the associated Euler–Lagrange system provided by

Conservation laws of partial difference equations with two independent variables

This paper introduces a technique for obtaining the conservation laws of a given scalar partial difference equation with two independent variables. Unlike methods that are based on Nother's theorem,

Direct Construction of Conservation Laws from Field Equations

This Letter presents an algorithm to obtain all local conservation laws for any system of field equations. The algorithm uses a formula which directly generates the conservation laws and does not

First integrals of ordinary difference equations beyond Lagrangian methods

A new method for finding first integrals of discrete equations is presented. It can be used for discrete equations which do not possess a variational (Lagrangian or Hamiltonian) formulation. The

Conservation laws for integrable difference equations

This paper deals with conservation laws for all integrable difference equations that belong to the famous Adler–Bobenko–Suris classification. All inequivalent three-point conservation laws are found,

This paper describes a new symmetry-based approach to solving a given ordinary difference equation. By studying the local structure of the set of solutions, we derive a systematic method for

Symmetries and differential equations

The knowledge of the maximal Lie group or abstract monoid of symmetries of an ordinary non-singular differential equation (or system of equations) allows us to obtain solutions of them. Traditional
