Hi, I have the differential equation
. Satisfied by , where on y=0 and x is between minus to plus infnity, show that the solution is
, where x=t+s and y=t.
I know I have to use the chain rule but I am not sure how to start. Do you have any hints you could give me to start working the solution? Thanks a lot.
My bad. I thought all you had to do was verify. Your equation is a first order quasilinear equation. One way to solve it is to use the method of characteristics which from the form of the solution was used here.
