Abstract [en]

In this work we consider a class of fourth-order nonlinear partial differential equation containing several tin-specified coefficient functions of the dependent variable which encapsulates various mathematical models used, e.g. for describing the dynamics of thin liquid films. We determine the subclasses of these equations which are self-adjoint. By using a general theorem on conservation laws proved by one of the authors (NHI) we find conservation laws for some of these partial differential equations without Classical Lagrangians.
