First order non linear partial differential equations

  1. Nov 15, 2009 #1
    Consider the following function of space and time for a propagating plane wave were nonlinear effects are included via a constant "B"

    u(x,t) = u[t - x/[c + Bu(x,t)]]

    show that u(x,t) satisfies a first order non linear PDE.
