Symmetries of differential behaviors and finite group actions on free modules over a polynomial ring. (English) Zbl 0802.93029
Summary: We study finite group symmetries of differential behaviors (i.e., kernels of linear constant coefficient partial differential operators). They lead us to study the actions of a finite group on free modules over a polynomial ring. We establish algebraic results which are then used to obtain canonical differential representations of symmetric differential behaviors.
