Abstract. In the present paper, the existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence upon the data of the strong solution of a mixed problem for a singular second order hyperbolic equation with an integral condition is proved. The proof is essentially based on an a priori estimate and on the density of the range of the operator generated by the considered problem. In spite of the apparent simplicity of the problem, the solution requires a delicate set of techniques. The investigation is accomplished in a traditional functional analysis language and techniques.
