A group theoretical identification of integrable equations in the Liénard-type equation . II. Equations having maximal Lie point symmetries

### Abstract

In this second of the set of two papers on Lie symmetry analysis of a class of Liénard-type equation of the form , where overdot denotes differentiation with respect to time and and are smooth functions of their variables, we isolate the equations which possess maximal Lie point symmetries. It is well known that any second order nonlinear ordinary differential equation which admits eight parameter Lie point symmetries is linearizable to free particle equation through point transformation. As a consequence all the identified equations turn out to be linearizable. We also show that one can get maximal Lie point symmetries for the above Liénard equation only when (subscript denotes differentiation). In addition, we discuss the linearizing transformations and solutions for all the nonlinear equations identified in this paper.
