Abstract : The focus of this research project has been the study of systems of conservation laws that lose strict hyperbolicity. Two areas of application, namely isentropic gas dynamics for a van der Waals gas, and multiphase flow in a porous medium were considered. Additionally, a numerical study of the elastic string equations using Glimm's random choice method has been completed.
