Symmetry-invariant conservation laws of partial differential equations

  • STEPHEN C. ANCO (a1) and ABDUL H. KARA (a2)

A simple characterization of the action of symmetries on conservation laws of partial differential equations is studied by using the general method of conservation law multipliers. This action is used to define symmetry-invariant and symmetry-homogeneous conservation laws. The main results are applied to several examples of physically interest, including the generalized Korteveg-de Vries equation, a non-Newtonian generalization of Burger's equation, the b-family of peakon equations, and the Navier–Stokes equations for compressible, viscous fluids in two dimensions.
