An Ill Posed Cauchy Problem for a Hyperbolic System in Two Space
We give an example of a Cauchy problem for a nonlinear hyperbolic system of
conservation laws in two space dimension which is not well posed. A sequence
of initial data in L^infty converges strongly, but the sequence of solutions
has no strong limit, due to oscillation phoenomena. The weak limit fails to
be a weak solution, in general.
