Type of Event: Conference, International

Nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws govern a broad spectrum of physical phenomena, in compressible fluid dynamics, nonlinear material science, etc. Such equations admit solutions that may exhibit shock waves and other nonlinear waves (propagating phase boundaries, fluid interfaces, etc) which play a dominant role in multiple areas of physics. Recent developments on the theory of one-dimensional systems will be covered, including: entropy conditions, L1 well-posedness, singular limits, diffusive approximations, relaxation models, kinetic relations, shock wave structure, links with thermodynamics, etc.
