On Isentropic Solutions of First-Order Quasilinear Equations

M. V. Korobkov and E. Yu. Panov

Abstract: Conditions of existence of nontrivial isentropic solutions to first order conservation laws are found. Applications are given to the problem on functional dependence for partial derivatives of a smooth function of two variables. In particular, we find conditions on the function $\varphi$, which are necessary for existence of nontrivial $C^1$-smooth solutions for the equation $\frac{\partial v}{\partial t}=\varphi(\frac{\partial v}{\partial x})$.
