### Abstract

Some evolution equations possess infinite-dimensional prolongation Lie algebras which can be made finite-dimensional by using a bigger (non-Archimedean) field. The advantage of this is that convergence problems hardly exist in such a field. Besides that, the accompanying Lie groups can be easily constructed.
