Measure-valued solutions of scalar conservation laws with boundary conditions

  • Anders Szepessy


We define a solution concept for measure-valued solutions to scalar conservation laws with initial conditions and boundary conditions and prove a uniqueness theorem for such solutions. This result may be used to prove convergence, towards the unique solution, for approximate solutions which are uniformly bounded in L, weakly consistent with certain entropy inequalities and strongly consistent with the initial condition, i.e. without using derivative estimates. As an example convergence of a finite element method is demonstrated.
