Abstract

A class of symmetry transformations of a type originally introduced in a nonlinear optics context is used here to isolate an integrable Ermakov-Painlev´e II reduction of a resonant NLS equation which encapsulates a nonlinear system in cold plasma physics descriptive of the uniaxial propagation of magneto-acoustic waves. A B¨acklund transformation is employed in the iterative generation of novel classes of solutions to the cold plasma system which involve either Yablonski-Vorob’ev polynomials or classical Airy functions
