Title: Nonlocal symmetry of CMA generates ASD Ricci-flat metric with no Killing vectors

The complex Monge-Ampère equation (CMA) in a two-component form is treated as a bi-Hamiltonian system. I present explicitly the first nonlocal symmetry flow in each of the two hierarchies of this system. An invariant solution of CMA with respect to these nonlocal symmetries is constructed which, being a noninvariant solution in the usual sense, does not undergo symmetry reduction in the number of independent variables. I also construct the corresponding 4-dimensional anti-self-dual (ASD) Ricci-flat metric with either Euclidean or neutral signature. It admits no Killing vectors which is one of characteristic features of the famous gravitational instanton K3.
