Extending Lagrangian transformations to nonconvex scalar conservation laws
Texas State University, Department of Mathematics
This article studies a method of finding Lagrangian transformations, in the form of particle paths, for all scalar conservation laws having a smooth flux. These are found using the notion of weak diffeomorphisms. More precisely, from any given scalar conservation law, we derive a Temple system having one linearly degenerate and one genuinely nonlinear family. We modify the system to make it strictly hyperbolic and prove an existence result for it. Finally we establish that entropy admissible weak solutions to this system are equivalent to those of the scalar equation. This method also determines the associated weak diffeomorphism.
