### Abstract

Consider the Cauchy problem for a strictly hyperbolic 2×2 system of conservation laws in one space dimension: {ie1-01} assuming that each characteristic field is either linearly degenerate or genuinely nonlinear. This paper develops a new algorithm, based on wave-front tracking, which yields a Cauchy sequence of approximate solutions, converging to a unique limit depending continuously on the initial data. The solutions that we obtain constitute a semigroup S, defined on a set {ie1-02} of integrable functions with small total variation. For some Lipschitz constant L, we have the estimate {ie1-03}
