Quasi-symmetrization of hyperbolic systems and propagation of the analytic regularity. (English) Zbl 0916.35063
The notion of quasi-symmetrization of first-order hyperbolic systems is introduced and applied to Sylvester systems, i.e. systems obtained by reducing a scalar equation of higher order. Then the authors prove that for any semilinear weakly hyperbolic systems of \(N\) equations the Gevrey solutions in \(x\) of order \(s< N/(N-1)\) remain analytic.
