An analysis of front tracking for chromatography. (English) Zbl 0789.35106
Summary: It is proved that front tracking has a convergent subsequence for the equations of chromatography for initial data with large variation. We show that this is also true for a variant of front tracking which tracks all waves. An example of a computation with the latter is presented.
