Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anyone know of a proof of why, in partial DEs, one can assume the existence of variable seperable solutions, then take the linear combination of all of them to be the general solution? Why can't there be any other funny solutions that fall outside the space spanned by these variable seperable ones?
