Olver, Peter J., Sanders, Jan A., Wang, Jing Ping (2002) Ghost symmetries. Journal of Nonlinear Mathematical Physics, 9 (supple). pp. 164-172. ISSN 1402-9251. (doi:10.2991/jnmp.2002.9.s1.14) (KAR id:8143)


We introduce the notion of a ghost characteristic for nonlocal differential equations. Ghosts are essential for maintaining the validity of the Jacobi identity for the charateristics of nonlocal vector fields.
