Well-Posedness and Regularity for the Wave Equation with Variable Coefficients

Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


In this chapter, we will consider the initial-boundary value problem for the wave equation on a manifold with boundary . The initial-boundary value problem corresponds to the elliptic operator \(-\varDelta _\mathrm {g}\) introduced in Chap.  2. We will develop a standard approach to prove the existence and uniqueness of solutions and to study their regularity proprieties.
