Recent work has established that a group theoretical viewpoint of completely integrable dynamical systems with N degrees of freedom yields an algorithm that provides new information concerning the symmetry transformation group structure of this class of dynamical systems. The work presented here rests heavily on the results presented in reference and it is recommended that the reader consult this reference for a more rigorous discussion of the results given in this thesis.
