Category:4. Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Subcategory:4.2. Second-Order Quasilinear Hyperbolic Equations
Equation(s):$\displaystyle \left[f(y)+\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}\right]\frac
{\partial^2 w}{\partial x\partial y}-
\left[g(x)+\frac{\partial w}{\partial x}\right]\frac
{\partial^2 w}{\partial^2 y}=0$.
The equation is represented in equivalent form
\frac{\partial U}{\partial y}\frac{\partial V}{\partial x}-
\frac{\partial U}{\partial x}\frac{\partial V}{\partial y}=0,
U=\int f(y)\,dy+\int g(x)\,dx+w,\quad V=\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}.
The fact that the Jacobian of the two functions $U$ and $V$ is zero 
(see Eq.(1)) means that the two functions (2) are functionally
dependent. Hence, $V$ must be a function of~$U$, so that
we have a first order PDE:
\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}=
\Phi\left(\int f(y)\,dy+\int g(x)\,dx+w\right),
where $\Phi(z)$ is an arbitrary function.
Remarks:The equation is represented in conservation law form:
\frac{\partial V}{\partial w}-\frac{\partial V}{\partial T}=0,
V=\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}, \quad T=\int f(y)\,dy+\int
The solution of Eq.(3) is $\,V=\Phi(w+T)$. Hence, we have a first order
\frac{\partial w}{\partial y}=\Phi\left(\int f(y)\,dy+\int 
where $\,\Phi(z)\,$ is arbitrary function.
