One variant of a (2 + 1)-dimensional Volterra system and its (1 + 1)-dimensional reduction
A new system is generated from a multi-linear form of a (2+1)-dimensional Volterra system. Though the system is only partially integrable and needs additional conditions to possess two-soliton solutions, its (1+1)-dimensional reduction gives an integrable equation which has been studied via reduction skills. Here, we give this (1+1)-dimensional reduction a simple bilinear form, from which a Bäcklund transformation is derived and the corresponding nonlinear superposition formula is built. © 2013 Higher Education Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
