(a) Let u(x, y) = eax eby . Then ux uy = = aeax eby beax eby uxx uyy uxy = = = a2eax eby b2eax eby abeax eby . So Auxx + 2Buxy + Cuyy + Dux + Euy + F u = 0 ⇔ Aa2eax eby + 2Babeax eby + Cb2eax eby +Daeax eby + Ebeax eby + F eax eby = 0 ⇔ eax eby Aa2 + 2Bab + Cb2 + Da + Eb + F = 0 ⇔ Aa2 + 2Bab + Cb2 + Da + Eb + F = 0, because eax eby = 0 for all x and y. (b) By (a), in order to solve uxx + 2uxy + uyy + 2 ux + 2 uy + u = 0, we can try u(x, y) = eax eby , where a and b are solutions of a2 + 2ab + b2 + 2a + 2b + 1 = 0. But a2 + 2ab + b2 + 2a + 2b + 1 = (a + b + 1)2. So a + b + 1 = 0. Clearly, this equation admits inﬁnitely many pairs of solutions (a, b). Here are four possible solutions of the partial diﬀerential equation: a = 1, b = −2 ⇒ u(x, y) = ex e−2y a = 0, b = −1 ⇒ u(x, y) = e−y a = −1/2, b = −1/2 ⇒ u(x, y) = e−x/2 e−y/2 a = −3/2, b = 1/2 ⇒ u(x, y) = e−3x/2 ey/2 13. We follow the outlined solution in Exercise 12. We have A(u) = ln(u), φ(x) = ex , ⇒ A(u(x(t)), t)) = A(φ(x(0))) = ln(ex(0) ) = x(0). So the characteristic lines are x = tx(0) + x(0) So u(x, t) = f (L(x, t)) = f ex and so x t+1 ⇒ x(0) = L(x t) = x . t+1 . The condition u(x, 0) = ex implies that f (x) = x u(x, t) = e t+1 . x x x Check: ut = −e t+1 (t+1)2 , ux = e t+1 x ut + ln(u)ux = −e t+1 1 t+1 , x x 1 x + e t+1 = 0. (t + 1)2 t + 1 t+1 ...
