Linear wave equation vs. linear system

  1. Feb 23, 2012 #1
    Hi,

    I have a general question about linear wave equation:

    Is solving the linear wave equation is equivalent to compute the output of a linear system where source is the input?

    Thanks in advanced!

    Best,
    Chao

    Linear system is much more general concept than linear wave equation.
