On integrability of (2+1)-dimensional quasilinear systems.

Download (190.88 kB)
A (2+1)-dimensional quasilinear system is said to be ‘integrable’ if it can be decoupled in infinitely many ways into a pair of compatible n-component onedimensional systems in Riemann invariants. Exact solutions described by these reductions, known as nonlinear interactions of planar simple waves, can be viewed as natural dispersionless analogs of n-gap solutions. It is demonstrated that the requirement of the existence of ‘sufficiently many’ n-component reductions provides the effective classification criterion. As an example of this approach we classify integrable (2+1)-dimensional systems of conservation laws possessing a convex quadratic entropy.
