Inhomogeneous wave equation - a reference

Consider the inhomogeneous wave equation $$\frac{\partial^2u}{\partial t^2}-\Delta u=\rho(x,t),$$ where $x=(x_1,\dots,x_n)$, $\Delta=\sum_{i=1}^n\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x_i^2}$ is the Laplacian, $\...

Uniqueness of solution of the wave equation

Consider the wave equation $$\frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial t^2}-\sum_{i=1}^n\frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x_i^2}=0$$ with initial conditions $$u|_{t=0}=\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}|_{t=0}=0$$ Does ...
