According to Olver [8], although most of Lie's work was concerned with first order linear differential equation systems, he also studied the problem of determining the symmetries of second order partial differential equations in two independent and one dependent variables; in particular, Lie found the heat equation symmetries, a case that has been taken for several authors as a key example for the description of the method.
