1. Introduction

Soliton equations with self-consistent sources have been receiving growing attention in recent years. Physically, the sources may result in solitary waves with a non-constant velocity and therefore lead to a variety of dynamics of physical models. For applications, these kinds of systems can be used to describe interactions between different solitary waves. Ma and Strampp systematically applied explicit symmetry constraint and binary nonlinearization of Lax pairs for generating soliton equation with sources [1]. Then, Ma presented the soliton solutions of the Schrö dinger equation with self-consistent sources [2]. The discrete case of using variational derivatives in generating sources was discussed in [3].

With the development of soliton theory, super integrable systems associated with fermi variables have been receiving growing attention. Various methods have been developed to search for new super integrable systems, Lax pairs, soliton solutions, symmetries and conservation laws, etc. [4]-[11]. In 1997, Hu proposed the super- trace identity and applied it to establish the super Hamiltonian structures of super-integrable systems [4]. Then Professor Ma gave a systematic proof of super trace identity and presented the super Hamiltonian structures of super AKNS hierarchy and super Dirac hierarchy for application [5]. The super Tu hierarchy and its super-Ha- miltonian structure was considered [6]. Recently, Yu et al. considered the binary nonlinearization of the super AKNS hierarchy under an implicit symmetry constraint [7] and the Bargmann symmetry constraint and binary nonlinearization of the super Dirac systems [8]. Meanwhile, various systematic methods have been developed to obtain exact solutions of the super integrable such as the inverse transformations, the Bä cklund and Darboux transformations, the bilinear transformation of Hirota and others [9]-[11].

This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, the method for establishing super integrable soliton hierarchy with self-consistent sources by using Lie super algebra was presented. For application, the super Tu hierarchy with self-consistent sources was obtained in Section 3. In Section 4, conservation laws of super Tu hierarchy were given.

2. A Kind of Super Integrable Soliton with Hierarchy Self-Consistent Sources

In the following. Consider a basis of Lie super algebra [5]

We consider the super trace identity of super integrable systems [4] [5]


where Str means the super trace. Defining a scalar by the equation


The sets proves the conserved densities of (4). The Hmailtonian form with can be written as

According to (3) and (5), we consider the auxiliary linear problem. For distinct, the following systems result from (1)


Based on the results [11], we show that the following equations

For (10), it is known that

According to (11), for a specific , we demand that


From (9) and (11), a kind of super integrable hierarchy with self-consistent sources can be present as follows


3. The Super Tu Hierarchy with Self-Consistent Sources

The super Tu spectral problem associated with Lie super algebra is given by [6]

The co-adjoint equation associated with (16) gives


If we set

Upon choosing the initial conditions

All other can be worked out by the recurrence relations (20). The first few sets are as follows:

Let us associate the problem (16) with the following auxiliary problem


The compatible conditions of the spectral problem (16) and the auxiliary problem (22) are


Which refer the super Tu equation hierarchy

. (24)

Here in (24) is called the n-th Tu flow of this hierarchy.

Using the super trace identity (7), we have


Therefore, the super Tu soliton hierarchy Equation (24) can be written as the following super Hamiltonian form:

The first non-trivial nonlinear of super Tu hierarchy is given by its second flow

Next we will establish the super Tu hierarchy with self-consistent sources. Consider the linear system


For the system (28), we consider the in the Lie super algebra and obtain



According to the results in (15), the super Tu hierarchy with self-consistent sources is presented as


The first nontrivial integrable super Tu hierarchy with self-consistent sources is its second flow


When, it is the well known nonlinear Tu equation with self-consistent sources. So system (30) is a novel super integrable equation hierarchy.

4. Conservation Laws for the Super Tu Hierarchy

In what follows, we will construct conservation laws of the super coupled Burgers equation. Introduce the variables:

Assume that, , then (38) can be written as, which is the right form of conservation laws. We expand and as series in powers of according with the coefficients, which are called conserved densities and currents respectively

, (39)

where are constants of integration. Then the first two conserved densities and currents are

The recursion relations for and are


where and can be calculated from (36). The infinitely conservations laws of (36) can be easily obtained in (32)-(40) respectively.
