Geometric Methods for the Integration of PDEs
Prof Geoff Prince (LTU and AMSI)
La Trobe University
Unlike ordinary differential equations the contact distribution associated to PDEs is not Frobenius integrable. So the first problem to be overcome in geometrically describing their solution is to find the smallest integrable distributions containing this contact distribution. In this talk I describe work done with Naghmana Tehseen on this problem and on the subsequent production of group invariant solutions. This talk assumes only basic exterior calculus.
