Correct. So your argument for being a solution is complete, because all the steps are reversible. Actually, you'd get . So the proof for the case won't end up with zero, because you can't get zero out of this messier expression. Make sense?

I guess both unknown functions u and v would have to be 0 for that term to go to 0. Thanks Ackbeet!
Right. You're welcome. Have a good one!
