Duff-Inami-Pope-Sezgin-Stelle Bosonic Membrane Equations as an Involutory System

Satır, Ahmet
Using Cartan's geometric formulation of partial diffential equations in the language of exterior differential forms, it is shown that bosonic membrane equations of Duff-Inami-Pope-Sezgin-Stelle (DIPSS) constitute an involutory system. The symmetries of reformulated DIPSS bosonic membrane equations are studied using three forms, elucidating in this way the previous results concerning Lie-point symmetries (Killing symmetries).
