Gibb's minimization principle for approximate solutions of scalar conservation laws

29 Jul 2016  ·  Perepelitsa Misha ·

In this work we study variational properties of approximate solutions of scalar conservation laws. Solutions of this type are described by a kinetic equation which is similar to the kinetic representation of admissible weak solutions due to Lions-Perthame-Tadmor, but also retain small scale non-equilibrium behavior... We show that approximate solutions can be obtained from a BGK-type equation with equilibrium densities satisfying Gibb's entropy minimization principle. read more
