A new approach for the analysis of partial differential equations is developed which is characterized by a simultaneous use of higher and conditional symmetries. Higher symmetries of the Schrödinger equation with an arbitrary potential are investigated. Nonlinear determining equations for potentials are solved using reductions to Weierstrass, Painlevé, and Riccati forms. Algebraic properties of higher order symmetry operators are analyzed. Combinations of higher and conditional symmetries are used to generate families of exact solutions of linear and nonlinear Schrödinger equations. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
