Applying the BGC reduction for the Hamiltonian H = E + V , one obtains the

operator, which coincides for ? = 1 (1 + ?1 )(1 + ?1 )? with the approximate Breit

Hamiltonian in the c.m. frame.

One may conclude from the above that two-particle GIWE can be successfully

applied for the description of interacting particles. The application of such equations

to concrete physical problems will be considered in future publications.

Some exact solutions of the

many-dimensional sine-Gordon equation

W.I. FUSHCHYCH, Yu.N. SEHEDA

In the present paper we construct the multiparametrical families of exact solutions

of the many-dimensional nonlinear d’Alembert equation

2U = sinh U, (1)

where 2 = ? 2 /?x2 ? · · · ? ? 2 /?x2 . This equation is concerned with some problems

n

0

of field theory [1]. In the case of n = 1 the analysis and the physical interpretation of

solutions of this equations are given in [2].

Up to date the inverse-scattering method is applied for solving two-dimensional

nonlinear equations (KdV, sine-Gordon, nonlinear Schr?dinger and some others) main-

o

ly and the attempts to extend this method for solving many-dimensional equations

are not so successful.

To construct some classes of exact solutions of the many-dimensional equation (1),

we use group-theoretical ideas of Lie which were applied fruitfully by Birkhoff [3],

Sedov [4] and Ovsyannikov [5] to nonlinear equations of hydrodynamics.

The maximal local invariance group of eq.(1) is the Poincar? group P (1, n) of

e

1,n

rotations and translations of the (1 + n)-dimensional space R .

We look for the solutions to eq.(1) of the form

(2)

U (x) = ?(?),

where ? is a function of the invariant variable ? only (for more details see [6]). We

use the following set of invariants which were presented in [7]. (Below the summation

convention is employed. The parameters ?? , ?? , . . . are arbitrary real constants.)

? = (x? x? )1/2 , (3a)

a, a? are arbitrary constants.

Substituting (2) into the many-dimensional partial differential eq.(1) we reduce it

to the ordinary differential equations

N2

?U ? (4b)

U = sinh U,

?

(case (3c))

l = ±1 (4c)

U = l sinh U,

(cases (3d), (3e)).

Here N1 and N2 are natural numbers depending on the value of the space dimen-

sion n.

When N1 = 0 and N2 = 0 eqs.(4a) and (4b) cannot be solved in explicit form.

Taking l = 1 we have from (4c)

2 cosh U + C

C is an arbitrary constant. The solutions of eq.(1) are found by in inversion of elliptic

integrals [8]:

Writing the integration constant in the form
