Relying on the existence of a semigroup of solutions, we first establish the uniqueness of entropy admissible weak solutions to the Cauchy problem, under a mild assumption on the local oscillation of $u$ in a forward neighborhood of each point in the $t\\\\text{-}x$ plane. In turn, this yields the uniqueness of weak solutions which satisfy a decay estimate on positive waves of genuinely nonlinear families, thus extending a classical result proved by Oleĭnik in the scalar case.1 aBressan, Alberto1 aGoatin, Paola uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/3375
