The principal object of consideration is the Cauchy problem \[ (-1)^ m {{\partial^ m u}\over {\partial t^ m}} -H \biggl( x,t,-{\partial\over {\partial x}},-{\partial\over {\partial t}}\biggr)u=0,\tag{1} \]
\[ u|_{t=0}= u_ 0, \qquad \partial u/\partial t|_{t=0}= u_ 1,\dots, \partial^{m-1} u/\partial t^{m-1}|_{t=0}= u_{m-1}, \] where \(H(x,t,-\partial/\partial x, -\partial/\partial t)\) is a differential operator of order \(m\) with coefficients that are analytic in \(\mathbb{C}_{x,t}^{n+1}\) and which does not contain the highest derivative with respect to \(t\).
Let \(X\subset\mathbb{C}_ x^ n\) be an analytic set of complex codimension 1 and let \({\mathcal H}\subset \mathbb{C}_{x,t}^{n+1}\) be the characteristic conoid of the set \(X\) in \(\mathbb{C}_{x,t}^{n+1}\) relative to the principal symbol of the operator in problem (1). The authors study questions of the solvability of (1) in spaces \(u\in {\mathcal A}_ q({\mathcal H})\) assuming that the Cauchy data \(u_ 0,u_ 1,\dots, u_{m-1}\) lie in the spaces \({\mathcal A}_ q(X),{\mathcal A}_{q-1}(X),\dots,{\mathcal A}_{q- m-1}(X)\) respectively, \(q>m-1\).
They introduce the concept of an elementary solution of the Cauchy problem, which plays the same role in the complex theory of partial differential equations as the fundamental solution does in the real case. This concept is based on the integral transformation of complex analytic functions which the authors introduced in [Math. USSR, Izv. 29, 407-427 (1987); translation from Izv. Akad. Nauk SSSR, Ser. Mat. 50, 1054-1076 (1986; Zbl 0634.44002)].
