- Published 2009

These notes provide an introduction to the theory of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws in one space dimension. The various chapters cover the following topics: 1. Meaning of the conservation equations and definition of weak solutions. 2. Shocks, Rankine-Hugoniot equations and admissibility conditions. 3. Genuinely nonlinear and linearly degenerate characteristic fields. Solution to the Riemann problem. Wave interaction estimates. 4. Weak solutions to the Cauchy problem, with initial data… CONTINUE READING
