Conservation laws of the Camassa-Holm equation. (English) Zbl 1076.35100

Summary: We use the bi-Hamiltonian structure of the Camassa–Holm equation to show that its conservation laws \(H_n[m]\) are homogeneous with respect to the scaling \(m \mapsto \lambda_m\). Moreover, a direct argument is presented proving that \(H_{-1}, H_{-2}, \dots\), are of local character. Finally, simple representations of the conservation laws in terms of their variational derivatives are derived and used to obtain a constructive scheme for computation of the \(H_ns\).
