### Uniqueness of Weak Solutions to Systems of Conservation Laws

Alberto Bressan and Philippe LeFloch

Abstract: Consider a strictly hyperbolic $n\times n$ system of conservation laws in one space dimension:
u_t+F(u)_x=0. \eqno(*)
Relying on the existence of the Standard Riemann Semigroup generated by (*), we establish the uniqueness of entropy--admissible weak solutions to the Cauchy problem, under a mild assumption on the variation of $u$ along space--like segments.
