We construct for every fixed the metric, where,,,, are continuous functions,, for which we consider the Cauchy problem, where,;,, where,,,,,, and are positive constants. When, we prove that the above Cauchy problem has a nontrivial solution in the form for which. When, we prove that the above Cauchy problem has a nontrivial solution in the form for which.
