Abstract

By developing the Tanaka theory for rank 2 distributions, we completely classify classical Monge equations having maximal finite-dimensional symmetry algebras with fixed (albeit arbitrary) pair of its orders. Investigation of the corresponding Tanaka algebras leads to a new Lie-Backlund theorem. We prove that all flat Monge equations are successive integrable extensions of the Hilbert-Cartan equation. Many new examples are provided.
