Abstract

A hyperbolic model to study effects of industrialization and urbanization on air pollution propagation is proposed. The existence of smooth and discontinuous traveling wave-like solutions, related to the spread of both the pollution in the atmosphere and the level of urbanization, is discussed. Validation of the model in point is also accomplished by searching for numerical solutions of the system of PDEs.
