Large solutions for 1-D compressible Euler equations

Hyperbolic and Mixed Type PDEs Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Stephanie Geyer.

Speaker: Geng Chen, Penn State University

Abstract: Although the well-posedness of solutions with small total variation for the hyperbolic conservation laws in one space dimension, including compressible Euler equations as an example, has been fairly well understood, the large BV solutions are still wide open. In this talk, we focus on two topics on the large BV solutions for Euler equations: Singularity formation and smooth solutions; Wave interactions.
