Sorry I don't understand why we can assume $\lambda$ to be a positive number ( here $\omega^4$), can someone help?

Since we have $u_{xy}=2u_x$
Let $v = u_x$
Now we have : $v_y = 2v$
which implies $v= \alpha'(x)e^{2y}$
integral with respect to x: $\int v dx = \int \alpha'(x)e^{2y} dx$
$u = \alpha(x)e^{2y} + \phi(y)$

Check: $u_x = \alpha'(x)e^{2y} + 0$
$u_{xy} = 2\alpha'(x)e^{2y} = 2u_x$

Here is my solution to this question:

Given $u_{xx} = 0 \text{ , } u_{yy} = 0$ and $u=u(x,y)$

$u_{xx}=0$ implies $u_x = \phi(y)$

so we have $u(x,y) = \int u_x dx = \phi(y) x + \psi(y)$ (*)

And from $u_{yy}=0$, we have $u_y = \varphi(x)$

With (*) implies $u(x,y)_y = {(\phi(y) x + \psi(y))}_y = \varphi(x)$

Partial derivative on both sides with respect to y we have:

$\phi_{yy}(y)x + \psi_{yy}(y) = 0$

which implies that:

$\phi_y(y) = c$ and $\psi_y(y) = d$ where both of c and d are constant

Thus:

$\phi(y) = cy + a$ and $\psi(y) = dy + b$ (**) where both of a and b are constant

Combine (*) and (**): we have $u(x,y) = cyx + ax + dy +b$ as our general solution to this pde question
