Problem 1 (not from the textbook). Solve the initial value problem: u x + 2 xu y = 2 xu, u (0 ,y ) = y 2 by two di erent methods (using parametrization of the characteristic curve such as γ ( s ) = ( x ( s ) ,y ( s )) and such as γ ( x ) = ( x,y ( x )) . Hint - see pdf notes for the second week lectures ) Sketch the initial value line and some characteristics. Find the domain of well-posedness of the problem.
