  1. Invertible Darboux Transformations of Type I , 2014.
    Informal abstract. In this paper we propose a general categorical approach to invertible Darboux transformations. For operators of arbitrary dimension and arbitrary order we singled out Darboux transformations of certain form and call them transformation of type I (precisely M generates a Darboux transformation for L of type I if the remainder of the division of L by M is just a function).
    Transformations of type I are always invertible, and amazingly we have simple coordinate-free formulas for all operators involved into the definition of Darboux transformation and its inverse in this case. All Darboux transformations of order one are of type I. Laplace transformations are of type I too.
    Using those we obtained analogs of chains Darboux transformations for operators of third order .
  2. Factorization of Darboux Transformations of Arbitrary Order for Two-dimensional Schroedinger operator, 2014.
    Informal abstract. We give a proof of Darboux's conjecture that every Darboux transformation of arbitrary order of a 2D Schroedinger type operator can be factorized into Darboux transformations of order one. The proof is constructive.

    Besides the main result, the paper contains an algebraic definition of a Darboux transformations for an arbitrary operator, which naturally implies additional properties that are usually had to be added artificially.

  3. Darboux transformations for factorizable operators, Programming and Computer Software, special issue Computer Algebra, (Russian Academy of Science, eds. S. Abramov, S.Tsarev), number 2, 2014.
    Informal abstract. He we address a "non-general" case, which was skipped in the paper above, and which occurs when initial operator is factorizable. Darboux transformations for such operators have a number of additional interesting properties, while many usual facts which are true for a general Darboux transformation are not true for this one. Initially the case was skipped due to the two reasons: 1) it is kind of very degenerate case, because once operator is factorizable, we can write down its complete solution; 2) the methods that have been employed for the general case completely fail here. However, since Darboux transformations of an operator are often used not for the solution of the corresponding linear PDE, but for some integrable system based on it, we cannot completely neglect this case.

    Darboux transformations for factorizable operator has lot of structure. In particular, there is a correspondence between Darboux transformations of factorizable second-order operators and Darboux transformation of first order operators. However, the correspondence is not one-to-one, and lifting back process is not immediate.

  4. Invertible Darboux Transformations , SIGMA 9 (2013), 002, special issue “Symmetries of Differential Equations: Frames, Invariants and Applications” in honor of the 60th Birthday of Peter Olver. Eds: N.Kamran, G.M.Beffa, W. Miller, G. Sapiro, bibtex
    Informal abstract. This paper is the first step towards the study of invertible Darboux transformations. If Darboux transformation is invertible then the corresponding mappings of the operator kernels is an isomorphism. For the classical case of operators of order two on the plane, there are only two invertible Darboux transformations, which are two famous particular cases of Darboux transformations, Laplace transformations.

    Here we find a criterion for an arbitrary operator on the plane to have an invertible Darboux transformation.

    We also study Wronkian-type formulas which allow to construct Darboux transformations for many different types of operators. These are non-invertible by construction. From time to time new works appear showing that Wronskian-type formulas generate Darboux transformations for some new type of operators. However, up until this work there has been no explicit example of an operator for which Wronkiant-type formulas do NOT work. We give an explicit example in this paper, and find sufficient conditions for Wronkians to work.

  5. Invariants for Darboux transformations of Arbitrary Order for $D_x D_y +aD_x + bD_y +c$ , Geometric Methods in Physics. XXXI Workshop, Bialowieza, Poland, June 30 to July 6, 2013, P. Kielanowski, S. T. Ali, A.Odesski, A. Odzijewicz, M. Schlichenmaier, Th. Voronov (editors), Trends in Mathematics. Springer, Basel, 2013. bibtex .
    Informal abstract. One of my goals is to develop an invariant approach to Darboux transformations. A Darboux transformation of arbitrary order for an operator of the form $L=D_x D_y +aD_x + bD_y +c$ is generated by an arbitrary partial differential operator $M$. The fact that operator $M$ is arbitrary makes it hard to find compact constructive and explicit formulas for the joint differential invariants.
    Such formulas is the achievement of the present paper. The formulas are given in terms of complete Bell polynomials.
  6. Proof of the Completeness of Darboux Wronskian Formulae for Order Two, Canadian Journal of Mathematics 65, no.3, 655-674, 2013.
    Informal abstract. The paper contains a constructive proof that every Darboux transformation for operators of the form $D_x D_y +aD_x + bD_y +c$ can be factored into elementary Darboux transformations of order one. For such operators there are only two types of elementary Darboux transformations: Wronskian-type and Laplace transformations (this was proved in earlier paper Laplace Transformations as the Only Degenerate Darboux Transformations of First Order).

    The conjecture was reduced to the solution of a complicated system of non-linear PDEs. Using moving frames method (of differential geometry, due to P.Olver et al.) I have found a generating set of joint differential invariants for the involved operators. Then after re-writing in terms of invariants, the initial system split into two much simpler systems, one of which was a system of linear PDEs.

    Informal abstract. Wronskian formulas allow one to construct Darboux Transformations (DTs). Laplace transformations (DT of order one) cannot be represented in this way. Here: among DTs of total order 1 - NO exceptions, other than Laplace transformations.
