|Abstract: ||In this thesis, we study the stability of planar rarefaction waves to the Cauchy and the
initial boundary value problems for hyperbolic conservation laws. Precisely, we study
the following problems: In Chapter 2, we aim to prove the convergence rates of solutions
to strong rarefaction waves for two-dimensional viscous conservation law with
boundary. In Chapter 3, we study the decay rates of strong planar rarefaction waves
to scalar conservation laws with degenerate viscosity. In Chapter 4, we investigate the
asymptotic stability of the weak rarefaction wave for Cauchy problem for generalized
KdV-Burgers-Kuramoto equation. The analysis is based on a priori estimates and the
standard L2-energy method.|
