Partial differential equations

A) Classify and find general expressions for the characteristic coordinates for the equation {see attachment}
b) Use the canonical coordinates {see attachment} and transfer the above PDE into the new coordinates. Solve it in the new coordinates and show that {see attachments} where F and G are arbitrary functions of their arguments.


Solution Summary

This shows how to classify and find general expressions for characteristic coordinates and use given canonical coordinates to transfer a partial differential equation to new coordinates.
