On nonlocal symmetries, nonlocal conservation laws and nonlocal transformations of evolution equations: two linearisable hierarchies. (English) Zbl 1284.35021

Summary: We discuss nonlocal symmetries and nonlocal conservation laws that follow from the systematic potentialisation of evolution equations. Those are the Lie point symmetries of the auxiliary systems, also known as potential symmetries. We define higher-degree potential symmetries which then lead to nonlocal conservation laws and nonlocal transformations for the equations. We demonstrate our approach and derive second degree potential symmetries for the Burgers’ hierarchy and the Calogero-Degasperis-Ibragimov-Shabat hierarchy.
