From elementary algebra to Bäcklund transformations. (English) Zbl 0726.58041

Several problems of the theory of ordinary and partial differential equations are reviewed. These are infinite systems of linear equations, vector fields on \({\mathbb{R}}^{\infty}\), differential forms, the Frobenius theorem, Monge systems of equations, Lie-Bäcklund infinitesimal symmetries etc.
