Vanishing viscosity and weak asymptotic approach to systems of conservation laws admitting $\delta_\infty$-waves

Systems of Conservation laws which are not strictly hyperbolic appear in many physical applications. Generally for these systems the solution spaceis larger than the usual BVl oc space and classical Glimm-Lax Theory does not apply. We start with the non-strictly hyperbolic system(uj) t +j Xi=1( uiuj −i +12) x = 0, j = 1, 2...n.For n = 1, the above system is the celebrated Bugers equation which is well studiedby E. Hopf. For n = 2, the above system describes one dimensional model for largescale structure formation of universe. We study (n = 4) case of the above system,using vanishing viscosity approach for Riemann type initial and boundary data andpossible integral formulation, when the solution has nice structure. For certain classof general initial data we construct weak asymptotic solution developed by Panovand Shelkovich. As an application we study zero pressure gas dynamics system, namely,ut + (u. ∇)u = 0, ρt + ∇.(ρu) = 0,where ρ and u are density and velocity components respectively
