Original paper


We consider the problem of estimating the boundary layer thickness for vanishing viscosity solutions of boundary value problems for parabolic perturbations of a scalar conservation law in a space strip in R d . For the boundary layer thickness δ(ε) we obtain that one can take δ(ε)= ε r , for any r<1/2, arbitrarily close to 1/2.
