First Order Equations

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 37)


In this chapter we will deal with first order scalar partial differential equations. The problem under consideration is
$$ \left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {F(x,u(x),Du(x)) = 0,a.ein\Omega } \\ {u = \varphi ,on\partial \Omega ,} \end{array}} \right. $$
Where \( \Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}^n} \) is an open set, \( F:\Omega \times \mathbb{R} \times {\mathbb{R}^n} \to \mathbb{R} \)is continuous and \( \varphi \in {W^{1,\infty }}(\Omega ) \).
