English abstract:
The weak-strong uniqueness for solutions to reaction-cross-diffusion systems in a bounded domain with no-flux boundary conditions is proved. The system generalizes the Shigesada-Kawasaki-Teramoto population model to an arbitrary number of species. The diffusion matrix is neither symmetric nor positive definite, but the system possesses a formal gradient-flow or entropy structure. No growth conditions on the source terms are imposed. It is shown that any renormalized solution coincides with a strong solution with the same initial data, as long as the strong solution exists. The proof is based on the evolution of the relative entropy modified by suitable cutoff functions.
