Has my lecturer lost the plot ?

    Has my lecturer lost the plot!!!!?

    He keeps giving us PDEs to solve where the initial conditions specify x at a POINT rather than along a curve e.g. solve yzx+xzy+z=y given z=2 @ (3,1)

    should he not be saying z@ x = ... OR z @ y = ...

    It's the point (3, 1, 2) in cartesian coordinates.
