On the Stability of the Standard Riemann Semigroup

Stefano Bianchini and Rinaldo M. Colombo

Abstract: We consider the dependence of the entropic solution of a hyperbolic system of conservation laws \[ \left\{ \begin{array}{c} u_t + f(u)_x = 0 \\ u(0,\cdot) = u_0 \end{array} \right. \] on the flux function $f$. We prove that the solution in Lipschitz continuous w.r.t.~the $C^0$ norm of the derivative of the perturbation of $f$. We apply this result to prove the convergence of the solution of the relativistic Euler equation to the classical limit.
