15.59: a) As time goes on, someone moving with the wave would need to move in such a way that the wave appears to have the same shape. If this motion can be described by with , c c vt x + = a constant (not the speed light),then ), ( ) , ( c f t x y = and the waveform is the same to such observer. b) See Problem 15.54. The derivation is completed by taking the second partials, ,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
