Consider a strictly hyperbolic n × n system of conservation laws in one space dimension: ut + F(u)x = 0, (*) Relying on the existence of the Standard Riemann Semigroup generated by (*), we establish the uniqueness of entropy-admissible weak solutions to the Cauchy problem, under a mild assumption on the variation of u along space-like segments.
