The order completion method for systems of nonlinear PDEs: solutions of initial value problems. (English) Zbl 1308.35011

Summary: We present an existence result for generalized solutions of initial value problems obtained through the order completion method. The solutions we obtain satisfy the initial condition in a suitable extended sense, and each such solution may be represented in a canonical way through its generalized partial derivatives as nearly finite normal lower semicontinuous function.
