Abstract

In [18] Jacobi introduced a third-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation which links two different moduli of an elliptic integral. In the present paper Lie group analysis is applied to that equation named Jacobi's modular differential equation. A six-dimensional Lie symmetry algebra is obtained and its symmetry generators are found to be given in terms of elliptic integrals. As a consequence the transformation between Jacobi's modular differential equation and the well-known Schwarzian differential equation is derived.
