Morphisms and inverse problems for Darboux integrating factors
Rights accessOpen Access
Polynomial vector fields which admit a prescribed Darboux integrat- ing factor are quite well-understood when the geometry of the underlying curve is nondegenerate. In the general setting morphisms of the affine plane may remove degeneracies of the curve, and thus allow more structural insight. In the present paper we establish some properties of integrating factors subjected to morphisms, and we discuss in detail one particular class of morphisms related to finite reflection groups. The results indicate that degeneracies for the underlying curve generally impose restrictions on the nontrivial vector fields which admit a given integrating factor.
