|Title:||Singularity formation for a system of conservation laws in two space dimensions|
|Abstract:||We study singularity formation for the 2 x 2 system u(t) + (u(2))(x) + (uv)(y) = 0 and v(t) + (uv)(x) + (v(2))(y) = 0. Our analysis is based on the argument, due to J. Keller and L. Ting (1966, Comm. Pure. Appl. Math. 19, 371-420), about the evolution along a characteristic of the compression rate of nearby characteristics. This system is one of a class of systems, called partially aligned, which exhibit a degenerate characteristic structure where a pair of directions replaces the usual cone at ever point.
