Symmetry analysis based on Lie group theory is the most important method for solving nonlinear problems aside from numerical computation. The method can be used to find the symmetries of almost any system of differential equations and the knowledge of these symmetries can be used to reduce the complexity of physical problems governed by the equations. This is a broad, self-contained, introduction to the basics of symmetry analysis for first and second year graduate students in science, engineering and applied mathematics. Mathematica-based software for finding the Lie point symmetries and Lie-Backlund symmetries of differential equations is included on a CD along with more than forty sample notebooks illustrating applications ranging from simple, low order, ordinary differential equations to complex systems of partial differential equations. MathReader 4.0 is included to let the user read the sample notebooks and follow the procedure used to find symmetries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an easy to read informal introduction to symmetry methods for ordinary and partial differential equations.' Monatshefte fur Mathematik
'Overall, this was an enjoyable book to read, which I could recommend to someone to tackle as background reading. ... if one's interest is in the application of symmetry analysis to problems arising in fluids, then this book discusses 'how' in detail.' Peter Clarkson, University of Kent
