Abstract: In present paper, time-fractional generalised Korteweg-de Vries equations (KdVs) are considered, a systematic investigation to derive Lie point symmetries of the equations are presented and compared. Each of them has been transformed into a nonlinear ordinary differential equation with a new independent variable are investigated. The derivative corresponding to time-fractional in the reduced formula is known as the Erdélyi-Kober fractional derivative.

Keywords: time-fractional generalised KdVs; Erdélyi-Kober operators; Lie symmetry analysis; Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative; Korteweg-de Vries equations; nonlinear ODEs; ordinary differential equations independent variables.
