Title:How to construct systems of conservation laws with prescribed geometry
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Kris Jenssen, Penn State University
We consider the problem of constructing systems of hyperbolic conservation laws in one space dimension with prescribed eigencurves. This yields an overdetermined system of equations for the eigenvalues-to-be. These resulting equations are then analyzed with techniques from exterior differential systems. We give an outline of the procedure and give some examples.
