Category:4. Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Subcategory:4.2. Second-Order Quasilinear Hyperbolic Equations
$\displaystyle \frac{\partial^2 w}{\partial x\partial y}=f\left(\frac{\partial w}{\partial x}\right)\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}$.
1. Suppose $w(x,y)$ is a solution of the equation in question. Then the function
where $C$ is an arbitrary constant and $\varphi(y)$ is an arbitrary function,
is also a solution of the equation.

2. Exact solution:
w=U(z),\quad z=x+\varphi(y),
where $\varphi(y)$ is an arbitrary function, 
and the function $U(z)$ is defined parametrically by
z=\int\frac {d\xi}{\xi f(\xi)}+ C_1,\quad \ U=\int\frac {d\xi}{f(\xi)}+ C_2,
$C_1$ and $C_2$ are arbitrary constants.

3. First integral:
where $w_x$ is the partial derivative of $w$ with respect to $x$,
$\theta(x)$ is an arbitrary function, and $a$ is an arbitrary constant.
The first integral may be treated as a first-order ordinary differential
equation in $x$. On finding its general solution, one should replace the
constant of integration $C$ with an arbitrary function of time
$\psi(t)$, since $w$ is dependent on $x$ and~$t$.
