Propagation of Oscillations in Real Vanishing Viscosity Limit

  • Christophe CheverryEmail author


In this paper, we study viscous perturbations of quasilinear hyperbolic systems in several space dimensions. The equations involve a singular parameter ɛ which goes to zero. They arise in realistic models of compressible flow: the large-scale motions in the atmosphere [12]. They come also from theoretical considerations in non-linear geometric optics [4], [5]. We prove that solutions uɛ exist on a domain of space time independent on Open image in new window
