Programmed Algorithms of Symmetry Optimization

To search for inequivalent group invariant solutions of two-dimensional optimal system, a direct and systematic approach is established, which is based on commutator relations, adjoint matrix, and the invariants. The details of computing all the invariants for two-dimensional algebra are presented, which is shown more complex than that of one-dimensional algebra. The optimality of two-dimensional optimal systems is shown clearly for each step of the algorithm, with no further proof. To leave the algorithm clear, each stage is illustrated with a couple of examples: the heat equation and the Novikov equation. Finally, two-dimensional optimal system of the (2+1) dimensional Navier-Stokes (NS) equation is found and used to generate intrinsically different reduced ordinary differential equations. Some interesting explicit solutions of the NS equation are provided.
