Partial Differential Equations Solved Problems
How do you like me now (that is what the differential equation would say in response to your shock)!(or briefly a PDE) is a mathematical equation that involves two or more independent variables, an unknown function (dependent on those variables), and partial derivatives of the unknown function with respect to the independent variables.\] If the coefficients \(f\), \(g\), and \(h\) of equation (1) and the functions \(\varphi_k\) in (5) are continuously differentiable with respect to each of their arguments and if the inequalities \(f\varphi'_2-g\varphi'_1\not=0\) and \((\varphi'_1)^2 (\varphi'_2)^2\not=0\) hold along the curve (5), then there is a unique solution to the Cauchy problem (in a neighborhood of the curve (5)).The procedure for solving the Cauchy problem (1), (5) involves several steps.The system of ordinary differential equations where \(\Phi\) is an arbitrary function of two variables. \] The associated characteristic system of ordinary differential equations \[ \frac=\frac=\frac \] has two integrals \[ y-ax=C_1,\quad \ w-bx=C_2.With equation (4) solved for \(u_2\), one often specifies the general solution in the form \(u_2=\Psi(u_1)\), where \(\Psi(u)\) is an arbitrary function of one variable. If \(h(x,y,w)\equiv 0\), then \(w=C_2\) can be used as the second integral in (3). \] Therefore, the general solution to this PDE can be written as \(w-bx=\Psi(y-ax)\), or \[ w=bx \Psi(y-ax), \] where \(\Psi(z)\) is an arbitrary function.Classical Cauchy problem: find a solution \(w=w(x,y)\) of equation (1) satisfying the initial condition where \(\varphi(y)\) is a given function.
A solution (or a particular solution) to a partial differential equation is a function that solves the equation or, in other words, turns it into an identity when substituted into the equation.
