Local Jet Bundle Formulation of Bäckland Transformations : With Applications to Non-Linear Evolution Equations

The aim of this paper is to show that the theory of jet bundles supplies the appropriate setting for the study of Backlund trans­ formations. These transformations are used to solve certain partial differential equations, particularly non-linear evolution equations. Of course jets have been employed...
