# Multiple viscous wave fan profiles for Riemann solutions of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws

• For a system of hyperbolic conservation laws in one space dimension, we study the viscous wave fan admissibility of Riemann solutions. In particular, we show that structurally unstable Riemann solutions with compressive and overcompressive viscous shocks, and with constant portions crossing the hypersurfaces of eigenvalues admit viscous wave fan profiles. The main tool used in the study is the center manifold theorem for invariant sets and the exchange lemmas for singular perturbation problems.
