# Solve the cauchy problem and check the solution?

Consider $$xU_x +y U_y = 0$$

$$U(x,y) = x, \ \ \ \ on \ \ \ \ x^2 + y^2 = 1$$

has

1. a solution for all x,y $\in \mathbb R$

2. an unique solution in $\{ (x,y) \in \mathbb R^2 : (x,y) \neq 0 \}$

3. a bounded solution in $\{ (x,y) \in \mathbb R^2 : (x,y) \neq 0 \}$

4. an unique solution in $\{ (x,y) \in \mathbb R^2 : (x,y) \neq 0 \}$, but the solution is unbounded.

We can solve this by Lagranges method, we obtain $U(x,y = f(x-y)$ for some function $f$

We have given that $U(x,y) = x, \ \ \ \ on \ \ \ \ x^2 + y^2 = 1$, so $U(cos(\theta), sin(\theta)) = cos(\theta)$ for all $\theta$.
