Anyway, d^4x/dx^4 = 0 and d^2x/dx^2 = 0, no doubt. You > probably mean d^4u/dx^4 and d^2u/dx^2, don't you? >
The lack of response made me look into the reference:
<4usnp2$jq6@usenetw1.news.prodigy.com>
This points to an August 14, 1996 (!) post by Ronald H. Brady starting a thread "Solution of NonLinear PDE". He announces a solution of du/dt + u du/dx = 0 by means of series expansion.
