Title: Extensions of hyperbolic systems of balance laws
Speaker: Professor Michael Sever
Speaker Info: Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Brief Description:
Special Note:

An algorithm is presented for extension of a hyperbolic system of balance laws to a system of higher dimension, in such a manner that weak solutions of the original system form a subset of the weak solutions of the extended system. Hyperbolicity and the symmetry group of the original system survive the extension, and some information is obtained on the characteristic speeds for the extended system. An application to two-fluid flow is an example of this procedure.
