Uniqueness of conservative solutions to the two-component Camassa–Holm system via characteristics
Pages: 1581 – 1597
The paper is concerned with a direct proof the uniqueness of global conservative solutions to the two-component Camassa–Holm system, based on characteristics. Given a conservative solution $u=u(t,x)$ and $\rho = \rho(t,x)$, an equation is introduced to single out a unique characteristic curve through each initial point. It is proved that the Cauchy problem with general initial data $u_0 \in H^1 (R), \rho_0 \in L^2 (R)$ has a unique global conservative solution.
