Graduate Student Seminar

Title: Hyperbolic Conservation Laws: Shocks and One-dimensional Cauchy Problem
Speaker: Vaibhav Kukreja
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will start with a (qualitative) description of a shock wave and give several examples of shock waves. Next I will discuss the framework of conservation laws where solutions are composed such types of (nonlinear) waves. Briefly, I will try to discuss a way to construct a global weak solution to the Cauchy problem.
