Symmetry approaches for reductions of PDEs, differential constraints and Lagrange-Charpit method.

Boris Kruglikov


Many methods for reduction and simplification of partial differential equations are known. They provide various generalizations of the original symmetry approach of Sophus Lie. Plenty of relations between these methods have been explored in the literature.

In this short paper a unifying approach will be discussed. It is rather close to the method of differential constraints, but we make the latter rigorous basing on recent advances in compatibility theory of non-linear overdetermined systems and algebro-geometric methods for PDEs.
