Title:Hyperbolic Conservation Laws with Large Initial Data. Is the Cauchy Problem Well-Posed? BV Estimates for the P-System.
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Charis Tsikkou, Ohio State University
We give an example in which the Glimm estimate for a strictly hyperbolic system of two conservation laws is violated. We also consider the p-system and under the assumption that the initial data have small oscillation but not necessarily small total variation, we reproduce the Glimm-Lax type estimates with greater accuracy.
