The Fourier Method (for the Vibrating String)

  • Vladimir I. Arnold
Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


Consider the periodic boundary-value problem for the vibrating string:
$$ {u_{tt}}= {a^2}{u_{xx}},x \in {S^1} = \mathbb{R}/2\pi \mathbb{Z}$$
$$ u{\backslash _{t = 0}} = \varphi \left( x \right),{u_t}{\backslash _{t = 0}} = \psi (x) $$
