This paper deals with an application of complex analysis to second order equations of mixed type. We mainly discuss the discontinuous Poincaré boundary value problem for a second order linear equation of mixed (elliptic-hyperbolic) type, i.e. the generalized Lavrent'ev-Bitsadze equation with weak conditions, using the methods of complex analysis. We first give a representation of solutions for the above boundary value problem, and then give solvability conditions via the Fredholm theorem for integral equations. In [1], [2], the Dirichlet problem (Tricomi problem) for the mixed equation of second order $u_{xx} + sgn y u_{yy} = 0$ was investigated. In [3], the Tricomi problem for the generalized Lavrent'ev-Bitsadze equation $u_{xx} + sgn y u_{yy} + Au_x + Bu_y + Cu = 0$, i.e. $u_{ξη} + au_ξ + bu_η + cu = 0$ with the conditions: a ≥ 0, $a_ξ + ab - c ≥ 0$, c ≥ 0 was discussed in the hyperbolic domain. In the present paper, we remove the above assumption of [3] and obtain a solvability result for the discontinuous Poincaré problem, which includes the corresponding results in [1]-[3] as special cases.
