    Side conditions for ordinary differential equations

    Full text link
    We specialize Olver's and Rosenau's side condition heuristics for the determination of particular invariant sets of ordinary differential equations. It turns out that side conditions of so-called LaSalle type are of special interest. Moreover we put side condition properties of symmetric and partially symmetric equations in a wider context. In the final section we present an application to parameter-dependent systems, in particular to quasi-steady state for chemical reactions.Comment: To appear in J. of Lie Theor
