GROUP CLASSIFICATION, SYMMETRY REDUCTIONS AND EXACT SOLUTIONS OF A GENERALISED KORTEWEG-DE VRIES-BURGER EQUATION

Lie group classification is performed on the generalized Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation ut +δuxxx +g(u)ux −νuxx +γu = f(x), which occurs in many applications of physical phenomena. We show that the equation admits a four-dimensional equivalenceLie algebra
