The Painlevé property for partial differential equations. II: Bäcklund transformation, Lax pairs, and the Schwarzian derivative. (English) Zbl 0531.35069

[For part I see the author, M. Tabor and G. Carnevale, ibid. 522-526 (1983; Zbl 0514.35083).]

In this paper we investigate the Painlevé property for partial differential equations. By application to several well-known (integrable) partial differential equations it is shown that a Bäcklund transform defined by expansions about the ”singular manifold” leads to a formulation of these equations in terms of the ”Schwarzian derivative”. This formulation is invariant under the Möbius group and obtains the appropriate Lax pair (linearization) for the underlying pde.
