 MULTIPLE CHOICE TEST PARABOLIC PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

1. In a general second order linear partial differential equation with two independent variables,

• $A \dfrac{\partial^{2} u}{\partial x^{2}} + B \dfrac{\partial^{2} u}{\partial x \partial y} + C \dfrac{\partial^{2} u}{\partial y^{2}} + D = 0$

Where $A, \, B, \, C$ are functions of $x$ and $y$, and $D$ is a function of $x, \, y, \, \dfrac{\partial u}{\partial x}, \, \dfrac{\partial u}{\partial y}$, then the PDE is parabolic if

2. The region in which the following equation
