Abstract: We consider the mixed problem for the hyperbolic partial differential-functional equation of the first order
D_xz(x,y) = f(x,y,z_{(x,y)}, D_yz(x,y)),
where $z_{(x,y)} [-\tau,0] \times[0,h] \rightarrow\Bbb R$ is a function defined by $z_{(x,y)}(t,s) = z(x+t, y+s)$, $(t,s) \in[-\tau,0] \times[0,h]$. Using the method of bicharacteristics and the method of successive approximations for a certain integral-functional system we prove, under suitable assumptions, a theorem of the local existence of generalized solutions of this problem.

Keywords: partial differential-functional equations, mixed problem, generalized solutions, local existence, bicharacteristics, successive approximations
