this makes a hell lot more sense!! Thanks!

comment Limiting argument when proving inequality in Sobolev space
So I should interpret this inequality as: For any $f$ in $W^{1,1}$, there is a $\tilde{f}$, s.t. $\tilde{f}=f$ in the distributional sense with $\tilde{f}\in L^{\infty}$ and that inequality holds. Am I right?

comment Limiting argument when proving inequality in Sobolev space
first thank you for pointing out the Cauchy sequence part. I was stupid to not have seen this. But why does $f_n$ necessarily converge to this same $f$ in $L^{\infty}$?

comment What does it mean for a distribution to be in $L_2$?
I am trying to get a little intuition here. So based on what you said, a lot of distributions are not in $L_2$ since for a general distribution, you are not even lucky enough to get that kind of representation. Am I right?

comment What is the characteristics for the wave equation with space dimension more than 1?
What do you mean by there are no characteristics in higher spatial dimensions? I thought we need to just find a function $\phi(t,x,y)$, s.t. $\phi_t^2=\phi_x^2+\phi_y^2$. And the set$\{\phi=const\}$ would be the family of characteristic surfaces. When I tried to solve the equation, I got planes. But my intuition tells me that it should be something like the cone you mentioned. I don't know where I went wrong.
