Symmetry Reductions of the Lax Pair of the Four-Dimensional Euclidean Self-Dual Yang-Mills Equations

Abstract

The reduction by symmetry of the linear system of the self-dual Yang-Mills equations in four-dimensions under representatives of the conjugacy classes of subgroups of the connected part to the identity of the corresponding Euclidean group under itself is carried out. Only subgroups leading to systems of differential equations nonequivalent to conditions of zero curvature without parameter, or to systems of uncoupled first order linear O.D.E.’s are considered. Lax pairs for a modified form of the Nahm’s equations as well as for systems of partial differential equations in two and three dimensions are written out.
