8. Solve the initial value problem v t + e x v x =0 v ( x, 0) = x The ODEs are dx dt = e x , dv dt =0 and the initial condition for each x (0) = ξ, v ( ξ, 0) = ξ Solve the characteristic equation e x dx = dt e x = t + C Now use the initial condition e ξ =0+ C or e x = t + e ξ The solution of the other ODE
