It is just an alternate representation

Clear[f1, f2]

f1[a_][x_] := Sin[a*x]

f2[a_, x_] := Sin[a*x]

f1[c][t] == f2[c, t]

True

{Plot3D[f1[a][x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, {a, 1, 3}],
  Plot3D[f2[a, x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, {a, 1, 3}]}

Some people prefer the f[a][x] representation to explicitly separate out 
parameter(s) from argument(s)

If you prefer

DSolve[D[F[x, y, z], x, y] == 0, F[x, y, z], {x, y, z}]

{{F(x,y,z)->Subscript[c, 1][z][x]+Subscript[c, 2][z][y]}}

% /. f_[arg1_][arg2_] :> f[arg2, arg1]

{{F(x,y,z)->Subscript[c, 1][x,z]+Subscript[c, 2][y,z]}}
