|Title:||Contractive metrics for non-smooth evolution problems|
|Seminar:||Hyperbolic and Mixed Type PDEs Seminar|
|Speaker:||Alberto Bressan, Penn State|
|The talk will survey some techniques to construct a continuous flow
associated with an evolution equation in an abstract space.
In the first part I shall discuss the approach based on nonlinear semigroup theory,
and its applications to scalar conservation laws.
The second part will be concerned with the existence of alternative metrics that render the
flow Lipschitz continuous w.r.t. the initial data.
These apply, in particular, to hyperbolic systems of conservation laws and
to some first order nonlinear wave equations.|
