Text Book 2.4 Example 2.1
« on: February 19, 2022, 09:16:55 PM »
In this problem, $-1 < t < -\infty$, when applying D' Alembert's formula, why we integrate from 0 to t instead of from -1 to t?
Thanks in advance!

We integrate from $t=0$ because for $t=0$ initial conditions are done. $-1<t $ is a domain where $f(x,t)$ is defined
