# Question:Error, (in pdsolve/numeric/par_hyp) Incorrect number of initial condition

## Question:Error, (in pdsolve/numeric/par_hyp) Incorrect number of initial condition

Maple 2017

The following is the PDE I need to solve.

(x*y+1)*(diff(h(x, y), y, y, y))+(x+h(x, y))*(diff(h(x, y), y, y))-(diff(h(x, y), y))^2+k(x, y) = 0, (10.*(x*y+1))*(diff(k(x, y), y,y))+(10.*x+h(x,y))*(diff(k(x, y), y))-(diff(h(x, y), y))*k(x, y) = 0

This is the original boundary condition:

h(0, y) = f(y), h(x, 0) = 0, k(0, y) = g(y), k(x, 0) = 1, k(x, 25) = 0, (D[2](h))(x, 0) = 0, (D[2](h))(x, 25) = 0

After using pdsolve it come out the error:

pdsolve(eval(pde2, P = .1), pdebc4, numeric, [h(x, y), k(x, y)], spacestep = .1)

Error, (in pdsolve/numeric/par_hyp) Incorrect number of initial conditions, expected 0, got 2

If I remove one of the boundary condition when x=0, maybe h(0,y)=f(y), then the error will be this:

Error, (in pdsolve/numeric/par_hyp) Incorrect number of initial conditions, expected 0, got 1

However if I remove both when x=0, it come out this error:

Error, (in pdsolve/numeric) initial/boundary conditions must be defined at one or two points for each independent variable

May I know what is the problem of this equations?

P/S: I know its only differentiate with respect to y and is consider to be an ODE( I need more explantion on this please) and I'm still new to maple. Thanks!!
