Özet

We investigate the groups of equivalence transformations for first-order balance equations involving an arbitrary number of dependent and independent variables. We obtain the determining equations and find their explicit solutions. The approach to this problem is based on a geometric method that depends on Cartan's exterior differential forms. The general solutions of the determining equations for equivalence transformations for first-order systems are applied to a class of the Maxwell equations of electrodynamics.
