N2 - We study the large-time behaviour of solutions to the initial value problem for hyperbolic-parabolic systems of conservation equations in one space dimension. It is proved that under suitable assumptions a unique solution exists for all time t ≥ 0, and converges to a given constant state at the rate t-1/4as t→∞ Moreover, it is proved that the solution approaches the superposition of the non-linear and linear diffusion waves constructed in terms of the self-similar solutions to the Burgers equation and the linear heat equation at the rate t-1/2+α, α <0, as t→∞ The proof is essentially based on the fact that for t→∞, the solution to the hyperbolic-parabolic system is well approximated by the solution to a semilinear uniformly parabolic system whose viscosity matrix is uniquely determined from the original system. The results obtained are applicable straightforwardly to the equations of viscous (or inviscid) heat-conductive fluids.
