You can use either 'hyperbolic' function or 'solvepde' function to solve a hyperbolic partial differential equation.
However, I am not sure whether the equation written above is a hyperbolic partial differential equation though. You might need to resort to using finite element methods or finite volume methods to do this. May I know which of these parameters are known and which needs to be determined?
