Group analysis of KdV equation with time dependent coefficients. (English) Zbl 1197.35231
Summary: We study the generalized KdV equation having time dependent variable coefficients of the damping and dispersion from the Lie group-theoretic point of view. Lie group classification with respect to the time dependent coefficients is performed. The optimal system of one-dimensional subalgebras of the Lie symmetry algebras are obtained. These subalgebras are then used to construct a number of similarity reductions and exact group-invariant solutions, including soliton solutions, for some special forms of the equations.
