Hi MHF members,
I have the following PDE, how ever I do not know much about PDEs.
I am more an ODE guy. I would be glad if you can give me directions and/or
references for attacking the following equation
which represents the motion of an elastic bar of length
with a fixed end at and the other one is free.
It reminds me the heat equation when I factor this into components as
how ever the coefficients are complex valued.
I believe there should be another way.
