Renormalized entropy solutions for degenerate parabolic-hyperbolic equations with time-space dependent coefficients

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We study the well-posedness of renormalized entropy solutions to the Cauchy problem for general degenerate parabolic-hyperbolic equations of the form \begin{eqnarray*} \partial_{t}u+ \sum_{i=1}^{d}\partial_{x_{i}f_{i}(u,t,x)}= \sum_{i,j=1}^{d}\partial_{x_j}(a_{ij}(u,t,x)\partial_{x_i}u)+\gamma(t,x) \end{eqnarray*} with initial data $u(0,x)=u_{0}(x)$, where the convection flux function $f$, the diffusion function $a$, and the source term $\gamma$ depend explicitly on the independent variables $t$ and $x$. We prove the uniqueness by using Kružkov's device of doubling variables and the existence by using vanishing viscosity method.
