Abstract

For partial differential equations of mixed elliptic-hyperbolic and degenerate types which are the Euler-Lagrange equations for an associated Lagrangian, invariance with respect to changes in independent and dependent variables is investigated and results in the classification of continuous one parameter symmetry groups. For the variational and divergence symmetries, conservation laws are derived via the method of multipliers. The conservation laws resulting from anisotropic dilations are applied to prove uniqueness theorems for linear and nonlinear problems and the invariance under dilations of the linear part is used to derive critical exponent phenomena and to obtain localized energy estimates for supercritical problems.
