Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a set of two linearized integro-partial-differential equations with derivatives of first order (also inside the integrals). How many boundary (initial) conditions should I give for such problem for the solution to be unique? is the 'initial condition that intersect once with the characteristics' still holds? If you can add a refernce that I can use in front of my supervisior it will be great.

A simple problem that reflects my difficulties:

v_{t}+sin(x)v_{x}+f(x)u_{x}=0

u_{t}+sin(x)u_{x}+cos(x)v_{x}=0

Thank you
