Hyperbolic conservation laws with discontinuous fluxes and hydrodynamic limit for particle systems

Abstract:

We study the following class of scalar hyperbolic conservation laws with discontinuous fluxes:(0.1)∂t ρ + ∂x F (x, ρ) = 0 . The main feature of such a conservation law is the discontinuity of the flux function in the space variable x. Kruzkov's approach for the L1-contraction does not apply since it requires the Lipschitz continuity of the flux function in x; an additional jump wave may occur in the solution besides the classical waves; and entropy solutions even for the Riemann problem are n...
