Abstract: We investigate the conditions under which the Volpert-Kruzkov solution of a single conservation law in several space variables with flux $ F$ will satisfy the simplified entropy condition $ \operatorname{div}\,F^{\prime}(u) \leqslant 1/t$, and when this condition guarantees uniqueness for given $ {L^\infty}$ Cauchy data. We show that, when $ F$ is $ {C^1}$, our condition guarantees uniqueness iff $ F$ is isotropic, and that, for such $ F$, the Volpert-Kruzkov solution always satisfies our condition.
