Generalized solutions of linear partial differential equations with discontinuous coefficients
In this paper, we consider the Cauchy problem for linear first-order partial differential equations with discontinuous coefficients. We show that, under suitable assumptions, it has a unique continuous solution. Moreover, this solution is stable under perturbation of the coefficients. We also show that this solution can be expressed explicitly by integrating along generalized characteristics.
