We observe that application of a recursion operator of the Burgers equation does not produce the expected symmetries. This is explained by the incorrect assumption that D-x(-1), D-x = 1. We then proceed to give a method to compute the symmetries using the recursion operator as a first-order approximation. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
