Symmetries and adjoint-symmetries are two fundamental (coordinate-free) structures of PDE systems. Recent work has developed several new algebraic aspects of adjoint-symmetries: three fundamental actions of symmetries on adjoint-symmetries; a Lie bracket on the set of adjoint-symmetries given by the range of a symmetry action; a generalised Noether (pre-symplectic) operator constructed from any non-variational adjoint-symmetry. These results are illustrated here by considering five examples…

Infinitesimal symmetries of a partial differential equation (PDE) can be defined algebraically as the solutions of the linearisation (Frechet derivative) equation holding on the space of solutions

Geometrical Formulation for Adjoint-Symmetries of Partial Differential Equations

For systems of evolution equations with spatial constraints, adjoint-symmetries are shown to have another geometrical formulation given by one-forms that are invariant under the flow generated by the system on the solution space.

Adjoint symmetries for time-dependent second-order equations

The authors extend part of their previous work on autonomous second-order systems (Sarlet et al., 1987) to time-dependent differential equations. The main subject of the paper concerns the notion of

A simple characterization of the action of symmetries on conservation laws of partial differential equations is studied by using the general method of conservation law multipliers. This action is

A formula for symmetry recursion operators from non-variational symmetries of partial differential equations

An explicit formula to find symmetry recursion operators for partial differential equations (PDEs) is obtained from new results connecting variational integrating factors and non-variational

Pseudo-symmetries, Noether's theorem and the adjoint equation

Pseudo-symmetries were introduced by Sarlet and Cantrijn (1984) for time-dependent non-conservative systems. They are reconsidered in the context of general autonomous second-order systems, relying

On the Incompleteness of Ibragimov's Conservation Law Theorem and Its Equivalence to a Standard Formula Using Symmetries and Adjoint-Symmetries

A conservation law theorem stated by N. Ibragimov along with its subsequent extensions are shown to be a special case of a standard formula that uses a pair consisting of a symmetry and an

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
