The title should have been partial differential equations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

PDEs are solved usually by separation of variables but that assumes each solution is a product of two functions which are only dependent on one variable only.

But could there exist solutions which are not in the this form? If so how would you find them?
