AMCS seminar| Measure-valued – strong uniqueness for general hyperbolic systems

Start Date: October 17, 2017
End Date: October 17, 2017

By Professor Piotr Gwiazda (Institute of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Sciences)
The talk will concern the problem of uniqueness of solutions to general hyperbolic systems. Strong solutions are unique, and as it has been observed for many systems, not only in the class of strong solutions, but also in a wider class of entropy weak or even entropy/dissipative measure-valued solutions. These properties are referred as weak-strong or measure-valued-strong uniqueness correspondingly. We will discuss dissipative measure-valued solutions to hyperbolic systems and we do not assume that a priori solutions satisfy any bounds, in particular, that a solution consists only of a classical Young measure. We do not exclude possibilties of concentration measures in all appearing nonlinear terms as well as in the entropy.
