The Wave Equation

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 29)


The purpose of this chapter is to study initial-boundary value problems for the wave equation in one space dimension. In particular, we will derive formal solutions by a separation of variables technique, establish uniqueness of the solution by energy arguments, and study properties of finite difference approximations.
