Progress in Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

Hyperbolic Conservation Laws, namely nonlinear hyperbolic systems of first order partial differential equations in divergence form, have an illustrious pedigree and diverse applications to physics and beyond. Despite dramatic progress in recent years, this area is still replete with challenging open problems. The lecture will provide a glimpse to the history, the current state of affairs and the emerging trends in this field.
