Symmetry Analysis of the Lane-Emden Equation

Conference Name: MathFest 2009

We will focus on Lie theory and how it can be used to find symmetries of the Lane-Emden equation. This equation has provided a simple, physical description of the density distribution in many a stellar structure. Symmetry results of the equation will be presented.
