The aim of these notes is to give an account of some recent results about transport equations with variable $BV$ coefficients, and their applications to a class of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws in several space dimensions. Besides collecting results which are scattered in the literature, it has been my intention to give a self--contained and more readable reference, and to provide details, remarks, and connections barely mentioned in the original papers.

Keywords: BV functions, Hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, Transport equations
