    • Abstract

       

      Fokker-Planck type equations have been classified according to the groups of contact transformations to which they belong. It has been found that there are only five classes as in the case of groups of point transformations. We have also obtained the algebraic structures of the corresponding Lie algebras. However, there are isomorphies in their group properties. The corresponding basis sets of functionally independent invariants formed by the generators of these groups have also been obtained.
