Radially symmetric solutions for a class of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws

  • S. Noelle


For a class of two hyperbolic conservation laws in two space dimensions, which includes the Weyl equation of relativistic quantum mechanics and the complex Burgers equation as prototypes, we derive a class of radially symmetric solutions. These solutions are multiple valued, a fact which does have a physical interpretation in case of the Weyl equation.

Key words. Hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, complex Burgers equation, radially symmetric solutions.
