### Continuous Solutions of Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

- Series
- School of Mathematics Colloquium
- Time
- Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 11:00 for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
- Location
- Skiles 269
- Speaker
- Contantine Dafermos – Brown University

The lecture will outline how the method of characteristics can
be used in the context of solutions to hyperbolic conservation laws that
are merely continuous functions. The Hunter-Saxton equation will be used
as a vehicle for explaining the approach.
