For x − ct < 0 we get the influence of the boundary condition ux (0, t) = h(t) Differentiate the general solution: ( − ct ux (x, t) = F (x − ct) · 1 + G (x + ct) · 1 = dF(xx− ct)) + d . . . chain rule prime means derivative with respect to argument As x = 0 : h(t) = ux (0, t) = dF (− ct) d(− ct) + dG(ct) d(ct) = −1 c dF (− ct) dt 288 + 1 dG(ct) c dt dG(x + ct) d(x + ct) ...
