• Algebraic resolution of the Burgers equation with a forcing term

We introduce an inhomogeneous term, $f (t,x)$, into the right-hand side of the usual Burgers equation and examine the resulting equation for those functions which admit at least one Lie point symmetry. For those functions $f (t,x)$ which depend nontrivially on both $t$ and $x$, we find that there is just one symmetry. If $f$ is a function of only $x$, there are three symmetries with the algebra $sl(2,R)$. When $f$ is a function of only $t$ , there are five symmetries with the algebra $sl(2,R)\oplus_{s} 2A_1$. In all the cases, the Burgers equation is reduced to the equation for a linear oscillator with nonconstant coefficient.
