A Uniqueness Condition for Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws
Alberto Bressan and Marta Lewicka
Consider the Cauchy problem for a hyperbolic $n\times n$ system of
conservation laws in one space dimension: $$u_t+f(u)_x=0, u(0,x)=\bar
u(x).\eqno(CP)$$ Relying on the existence of a continuous semigroup of
solutions, we prove that the entropy admissible solution of (CP) is unique
within the class of functions $u=u(t,x)$ which have bounded variation along a
suitable family of space-like curves.
