Abstract

We construct a 3×3 matrix zero-curvature representation for the system of three two-dimensional relativistically invariant scalar fields. This system belongs to the class described by the Lagrangian L =[g_{ij}(u)u i_x u j_t]/2 + f(u), where g_{ij} is the metric tensor of a three-dimensional reducible Riemannian space. We previously found all systems of this class that have higher polynomial symmetries of the orders 2, 3, 4, or 5. In this paper, we find a zero-curvature representation for one of these systems. The calculation is based on the analysis of an evolutionary system u_t = S(u), where S is one of the higher symmetries. This approach can also be applied to other hyperbolic systems. We also find recursion relations for a sequence of conserved currents of the triplet of scalar fields under consideration.
