Abstract: To solve a quasilinear system of hyperbolic partial differential equations with given initial data, the usual procedure is to approximate the initial data, solve the resulting problems, and show that the variation of the approximating solutions is uniformly bounded. A limiting process then can be used. This paper shows that, for simple systems, the variation of the solution need not be finite.
