The Painlevé test and reducibility to the canonical forms for higher-dimensional soliton equations with variable-coefficients. (English) Zbl 1134.37358
Summary: The general KdV equation (gKdV) derived by T. Chou is one of the famous \((1 + 1)\) dimensional soliton equations with variable coefficients. It is well-known that the gKdV equation is integrable. In this paper a higher-dimensional gKdV equation, which is integrable in the sense of the Painlevé test, is presented. A transformation that links this equation to the canonical form of the Calogero-Bogoyavlenskii-Schiff equation is found. Furthermore, the form and similar transformation for the higher-dimensional modified gKdV equation are also obtained.
