Can someone help me with a headstart to this problem?
Find the no. of characteristic curves of the PDE
passing through the point x=1 and y=1.
I found that this pde is parabolic.. Does it help us deduce that there are no characteristic curves passing through the given point?
I reckon that a parabolic pde has 1 characteristic curve, an elliptic has none and a hyperbolic has 2 characteristic curves... Am I right?
