Generalized solutions to a characteristic Cauchy problem
In this paper we give a meaning to the nonlinear characteristic Cauchy problem for the Wave Equation in base form by replacing it by a family of non-characteristic ones. This leads to a well formulated problem in an appropriate algebra of generalized functions. We prove existence of a solution and we precise how it depends on the choice made. We also check that in the classical case (non-characteristic) our new solution coincides with the classical one.
