Title:Lipschitz metrics for non-smooth evolutions
Seminar:Hyperbolic and Mixed Type PDEs Seminar
Speaker:Alberto Bressan, Penn State
This second talk will be concerned with evolution problems where the flow is not contractive w.r.t. the natural distance generated by a norm, and where continuous dependence cannot be obtained by a Gronwall type argument. In this case, some results on well posedness can be achieved by introducing a weighted distance, possibly generated by a Riemann type metric. Examples will be discussed, including the Hunter-Saxton and the Camassa-Holm equations, and a second order variational wave equation.
