Exact Solution of a System of Generalized Hopf EquationsK.T. Joseph (1) Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India
In this paper we construct explicit solutions for initial value problem for a system of first order equations. When $n = 1$, this system is just the standard Hopf equation in conservative form. When $n > 1$, the system is non-conservative. We use the vanishing viscosity method to construct solutions. As the system is non-conservative we use Volpert product and the algebra of generalized Colombeau functions to make sense of the products which appear in the equations.
Keywords: Generalized Hopf equations, Hopf-Cole transformation, explicit formula for the solutions of generalized Hopf equations
