An important example of a multi‐dimensional integrable system is the anti‐self‐dual Einstein equations. By studying the symmetries of these equations, a recursion operator is found and the associated hierarchy constructed. Owing to the properties of the recursion operator one may construct a hierarchy of symmetries and find the algebra generated by them. In addition, the Lax pair for this hierarchy is constructed.
