Weak entropy solutions of nonlinear reaction-hyperbolic systems for axonal transport
Hao YAN and Wen-An Yong
Abstract: This paper is concerned with a class of nonlinear reaction-hyperbolic systems as models for axonal transport in neuroscience. We show the global existence of entropy-satisfying BV-solutions to the initial-value problems by using hyperbolic-type methods. Moreover, we rigorously justify the limit as the biochemical processes are much faster than the transport ones.
