Symmetry/Integrability Analysis and Computer Algebra for Nonlinear Differential Equations

S. Anco, T. Wolf and V. Sokolov have expertise as leaders in theory and symbolic computation for several modern aspects of differential equations: symmetries, integrability and solitons, conservation laws, classification of equations with formal geometric properties, applications to problems coming from applied mathematics, mathematical physics, as well as geometry.
