In this chapter we discuss the classical theory of mixed Cauchy boundary value problems for symmetric hyperbolic systems (see [Fr1], [Fr2], [Fr-La] and also [Tar], [Ra-Ma]). We follow closely the presentation in [Ch-Pi]. For simplicity, we consider here only constant coefficients equations and flat boundaries, but all the techniques can be adapted to variable coefficients and general smooth domains.
