Symmetry Classification of quasi-linear PDE's. II: an exceptional case    [PDF]

Giampaolo Cicogna
This short note completes the symmetry analysis of a class of quasi-linear partial differential equations considered in the previous paper (Nonlinear Dynamics, Vol. 51, 309-316 (2008)): it deals with the presence of an "exceptional" Lie point symmetry, not previously examined, which is admitted only if the involved parameters are fixed by precise relationships. The peculiarity of this symmetry is enhanced by the fact that it leads to a solution relevant in the theory of plasma physics, and also related to the presence of a nontrivial example of a conditional symmetry of weak type.
