### How to find the conserved quantities of the Kirchhoff equation?

Consider the Kirchhoff equation, given by $$u_{tt}-\left(1+\int_{\mathbb{R}} u_x^2\;dx\right)u_{xx}+f(u)=0, (x,t) \in \mathbb{R}\times \mathbb{R}_+$$ where $f(u)=u-u^{2r+1}$, for $r \in \mathbb{N}$. ...

### Initial-boundary value problem for systems of conservation laws

For the Euler equations in a bounded domain $$\begin{cases} \rho_t + q_x = 0 \\ q_t + (q^2/\rho + \rho)_x = - q \\ u|_{t=0} = u_0 \\ u|_{x=0} = g_0(t), \quad u|_{x=1} = g_1(t) \end{cases}$$ in which ...

### How to use these higher symmetries and conservation laws?

For infinite dimensional integrable systems, there are usually infinite symmetries and conservation laws. For example, the KdV equation, the KP equation. However, unlike the classical symmetries (...

### On solutions of the continuity equation

Can all square integrable solutions $(\rho(t,x),j(t,x))$ of the homogeneous continuity equation $$\dot\rho(t,x)+\nabla \cdot j(t,x)=0$$ in 1+3 dimensions be approximated by solutions with compact ...
