    first order PDE

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The general solution is just the sum of homogeneous solution and any exact solution.
    What I got was f(x^2-y^2)e^(-2)+ye^(x).
    I'm not sure about my answer and have no idea what to do with the initial condition. As u(x,y)is a dependent variable of x and y, how can it be on a 2-dimensional curve.
