Homework Help: The solution of the PDE

  1. Jul 10, 2010 #1
    find the general solution of yux+xuy=yu+xex ( the solution is in the form of u(x,y)=yex+f(y2-x2)ex )
    if at first the value of u(x,y) on the upper half of hyperbola (that is y>=1) has been given as φ,show that if φ has not been given as a special form there is no solution.find that special form of φ and show there is infinite solution in this situation.

    The characteristic equations are
    then the characteristic are given as [tex]dy/dx=x/y[/tex]. Then this integrates up to [tex]f(x,y)=C[/tex]. Then use [tex]du/dx=\dot{u}/\dot{x}[/tex] and integrate up.
