    Solving infinite wave eq using Fourier Transforms

    Solve the infinte wave equation
    \mu_{tt} = c^2\mu_{xx}
    \mu(x,0) = f(x)
    \mu_t(0,t) = g(x)

    using Fourier Transforms and show the solution reduces to the D'Alembert Solution.

    Do what is suggested- write u as a Fourier transform, u(x,t)= \frac{1}{2\pi}\int_{-\infty}^\infty A(t,s)e^{isx}dx. Put that into the partial differential equation and derive an ordinary differential equation for A(s,t) in t with s as a parameter.
