Flux limited generalized porous media diffusion equations. (English) Zbl 1282.35205

Summary: We study a class of generalized porous media type flux limited diffusion equations and we prove the existence and uniqueness of entropy solutions. We compute the Rankine-Hugoniot condition on the jump set for solutions which are of locally bounded variation in space and time. We give also a geometric characterization of the entropy conditions on the jump set for a restricted class of this type of equations.
