Using the machinery of Lie-group analysis several equations arising in fluid mechanics are studied. In particular, the Burgers' equation, the KdV equation, the Hopf equation, the two-dimensional KdV equation and the Lin-Tsien equation are analyzed.

Abstract

Using the machinery of Lie-group analysis several equations arising in fluid mechanics are studied. In particular, the Burgers' equation, the KdV equation, the Hopf equation, the two-dimensional KdV equation and the Lin-Tsien equation are analyzed. In all cases the particular group includes arbitrary functions of time which permit the transformation of time-dependent equations into the corresponding time-independent ones. Infinitely many time-dependent solutions are associated with each steady solution. Some solutions are constructed.
