ABSTRACT: The lecture will outline a research program which aims at establishing the existence and long time behavior of BV solutions for hyperbolic systems of balance laws, in one space dimension, with partially dissipative source, manifesting relaxation. Systems with such structure are ubiquitous in classical physics.
