## Staffy 2 years ago Solve (∂^2u/∂x^2) + (∂^2u/∂y^2) = 0 in y > 0 and −∞ < x < ∞ with u(x, 0) = f(x).

Is this Calc or Diff eq?

2. zordoloom

You still there?

3. zordoloom

I'm willing to work through this with you. A reply would be nice.

It's differential equations, it's for a mathematical physics class

the classic example of $$\displaystyle \frac{\partial^2 u }{\partial x^2}+\frac{\partial^2 u }{\partial y^2}=0$$ is $$\displaystyle u(x,y)=e^x \cos y + e^y \sin y$$

Sorry, I should specify that we are using fourier transforms to solve these problems
