Graduate Student Analysis Seminar

Continuous symmetries of differential equations and what they're good for

Erik Amorim, Rutgers University

Location:  Hill GSL
Date & time: Monday, 25 September 2017 at 5:00PM - 6:00PM

Abstract: After a brief introduction to manifolds and Lie groups, we will discuss what it means to say that one has a continuous symmetry of a system of differential equations (partial or ordinary), according to the theory first put together by Sophus Lie. We will show examples of useful applications that can be constructed from such a symmetry, and show how to obtain a symmetry from basic algebraic manipulations of the system.
