Abstract

Using Cartan's geometric formulation of partial diffential equations in the language of exterior differential forms, it is shown that bosonic membrane equations of Duff-Inami-Pope-Sezgin-Stelle (DIPSS) constitute an involutory system. The symmetries of reformulated DIPSS bosonic membrane equations are studied using three forms, elucidating in this way the previous results concerning Lie-point symmetries (Killing symmetries).
