I think you're right Jinlong. That was what I meant by my previous post. I could not find any other mention of a Goursat problem in the notes except on the first set of notes of the second week.

My question was with the Goursat problem, should it be of the form:

$$u_{tt}-c^{2}u_{xx}=0$$

$$u(t=\tau)=g(x)$$

$$u_{t}(t=\tau)=h(x)$$

like the example from class?

For the initial conditions for Problem 5 (c) should they both be at x = 3t or is it not a typo?
Thanks

This is just a test to see whether I can copy and paste from LyX:

u(x, t) = \varphi(x-ct)+\phi(x+ct)-\intop_{x-ct}^{x+ct}g(y)dy

For Part (c) of Problem 4, does it refer to the solution of (5) or (6) or both?
