Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws

Alberto Bressan

Abstract: Purpose of these notes is to provide a survey of some recent advances the mathematical theory of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws in one space dimension. After a review of basic theory, we describe in detail the method of wave-front tracking approximation and present the latest results on uniqueness and stability of entropy weak solutions.
