Free Boundary Problems and Related Topics

In hyperbolic equations, wave propagate with finite velocity. When the equation is quasilinear, this velocity depends on the state itself; this non-constancy leads to the formation of shock waves. Shock waves are inherently free boundaries. I shall present illustrate basic concepts in one space dimension and discuss a little bit the multi-dimensional setting, where stability is encoded in a Lopatinskii condition. I’ll also show that in specific problems (steady or self-similar solutions), one is naturally led to deal with elliptic equations.
