That's right, I said dependent. Does anyone have any experience dealing with such beasts. I haven't been able to find a single mention of them in any textbook on PDEs.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The thing I'm really curious to know is whether the method of separation of variables works as usual, e.g. if the dep vars are f and g, can I legitamately write

[itex]f = h(x)\varphi(y)[/itex]

[itex]g = f(x)\psi(y)[/itex]

you may assume of course that the PDE has been linearized.
