    Show that
    Z(x, y) = ln(sin y/sin x)

    is a solution to the minimal surface equation.
    (1 + Z)Z1 + 2ZXZZX + (1 + Z)Z = 0,
    in the region 0 < x < ir, 0 < y < pi. What happens on the boundary of this region? Suppose we consider a constant multiple of Z(x, y) ? is it still a solution of the PDE?
