Suppose $w(t,x,y,z)$ is a solution of the equation in question.

1. The function
$w_1(t,x,y,z)=\pm w(t,x,y,z)+H(t,y)+F(x,z),$

where $F$
and $H$ are arbitrary functions, is also a solution of the equation.

2. The function $w_2(t,x,y,z)=w(t',x',y',z')$ with

$\displaystyle t'=a_1 t+a_2y$

$\displaystyle x'=b_1 x+b_2 z$

$\displaystyle y'=c_1t+(\frac{c_1 a_2}{a_1}+\frac{1}{a_1(b_1

$\displaystyle z'=h_1x+h_2z$ 

where $a_1,a_2,b_1,b_2,c_1,h_1,h_2$ are
arbitrary constants, is also a solution of the equation.

3. The function $w_3(t,x,y,z)=a w(t',x',y',z')$ with

$\displaystyle t'=\tau(t)$

$\displaystyle x'=\frac{1}{a}\int_s^x \frac{d\xi}{D_2

$\displaystyle y'=\frac{c\,y}{\tau'(t)}+\theta (t)$

$\displaystyle z'=K(x,z)$

where $D_2K(x_1,x_2)=\frac{\partial K}{\partial x_2}$ and
$W(x,z,\xi)=W$ is any solution of the following transcendental
equation $K(\xi,W)=K(x,z)$, $K$,$\tau$, $\theta$ and  $G$ are
arbitrary functions, $a,c,s$ are arbitrary constants, is also a
solution of the equation.
