Weakly Nonlinear Geometric Optics for Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation

Gui-Qiang Chen, Wei Xiang, Yongqian Zhang
We establish an $L^1$-estimate to validate the weakly nonlinear geometric optics for entropy solutions of nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws with arbitrary initial data of small bounded variation. This implies that the simpler geometric optics expansion function can be employed to study the properties of general entropy solutions to hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. Our analysis involves new techniques which rely on the structure of the approximate equations, besides the properties of the wave-front tracking algorithm and the standard semigroup estimates.
