The paper presents a special class of embedding problems whoes solutions are important for the explicit solution of nonlinear partial differential equations. It is shown that these embedding problems are solvable and explicit solutions are given. Not only are the solutions new but also the mathematical framework of their construction which is defined by a nonstandard function theory built over nonstandard algebraical structures, denoted as “GAPs”. These GAPs must not be neither associative nor division algebras, but the corresponding function theories built over them preserve the most important symmetries from the classical complex function theory in a generalized form: a generalization of the Cauchy-Riemannian differential equations exists as well as a generalization of the classical Cauchy Integral Theorem.
