Abstract
In this talk we will discuss a theory of divergence-measure fields and related geometric measures, developed recently, and its applications to some fundamental issues in mathematical continuum physics and nonlinear conservation laws whose solutions have very weak regularity, including hyperbolic conservation laws, degenerate parabolic equations, degenerate elliptic equations, among others.
