A New Application of the Flux Approximation Method on Hyperbolic Conservation Systems


In this paper, we first summarize several applications of the flux approximation method on hyperbolic conservation systems. Then, we introduce two hyperbolic conservation systems (2.1) and (2.2) of Temples type, and prove that the global weak solutions of each system could be obtained by the limit of the linear combination of two systems.
