**Lectures on Cauchy Problem**

by Sigeru Mizohata

**Publisher**: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1965**Number of pages**: 191

**Description**:

A Cauchy problem in mathematics asks for the solution of a partial differential equation that satisfies certain conditions which are given on a hypersurface in the domain. Cauchy problems are an extension of initial value problems and are to be contrasted with boundary value problems.
