### General solution to a second order linear PDE

The following PDE defined on $\mathbb{R}^2$ $$\frac{\partial}{\partial x}\frac{\partial}{\partial y}f(x,y) = 0,$$ has solution $$f(x,y) = g(x) + h(y),$$ where $g,h : \mathbb{R} \mapsto \mathbb{R}$ are ...

### References for Green functions of $\nabla \cdot a \nabla$ on a domain with $a \in L^\infty$

I am looking for a reference for basic properties of the Green function for a symmetric, uniformly elliptic operator $\nabla \cdot a \nabla$ where the coefficients $a_{ij}= a_{ji}$ are only assumed to ...

### Explicit computation of a norm in context of operator-semigroups and differential equations

I am interested in the explicit calculation of the following norm $\vert \cdot \vert$. Let $X$ a Banach space with norm $\Vert \cdot \Vert$ and $(T(t))_{t \geq 0}$ a strongly continuous one-parameter ...

### Semiclassical analysis and reflection law

I was curious about the following vague question. In pseudodifferential calculus and semi-classical analysis there are various theorems that relate geodesics of the underlying space to the behavior of ...

### Difference between semilinear and fully nonlinear

I'm confused why the Hamilton Jacobi Bellman equation: $$\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}(t,x)+\Delta u(t,x) -\lambda||\nabla u(t,x) ||^{2}=0$$ is considered fully nonlinear, but not semilinear. By ...

### Approach to solve a coupled system of PDE (heat transfer in cylindrical coordinates)

I have the following two PDEs, which describe steady-state coupled heat transport between an externally heated axisymmetric solid body (Eq. 1, $T(r,z)$) and a fluid (Eq. 2, $t(z)$) flowing inside it: ...
