On the Cauchy problem for systems of conservation laws
S.I.S.S.A., Via Beirut 4, Trieste 34014 Italy
This paper contains an informal discussion of recent results concerning the well posedness of the Cauchy problem for a nonlinear system of conservation laws in one space dimension. The system is assumed to be strictly hyperbolic, with each characteristic field either linearly degenerate or genuinely nonlinear.
