One solution is u = x. If you let you'll end up with .
BTW - do you know the method of characteristics?
Hello everybody. I'm trying to solve this first-order NONhomogenous PDE. But because my awfully bad textbook only gave examples on how to solve homogeneous PDEs, I'm not sure what to do. Here's my scratch work.
I also know the theorem that if two solutions solve linear NONhomogeneous PDE, then their difference solve linear homogeneous PDE. But I don't think that's going to help here.
Problem: Solve
Scratch work:
I know how to solve the HOMOgeneous PDE:
The LHS is just the directional derivative of in the direction of .
So if a curve in 3D has as a tangent vector, the curve's equation is just
so so . So , where is differentiable.
But how do I solve the NONhomogeneous question from this?
Thanks everybody.
