Abstract : We investigate the density large deviation function for a multidimensional conservation law in the vanishing viscosity limit, when the probability concentrates on weak solutions of a hyperbolic conservation law conservation law. When the conductivity and dif-fusivity matrices are proportional, i.e. an Einstein-like relation is satisfied, the problem has been solved in . When this proportionality does not hold, we compute explicitly the large deviation function for a step-like density profile, and we show that the associated optimal current has a non trivial structure. We also derive a lower bound for the large deviation function, valid for a general weak solution, and leave the general large deviation function upper bound as a conjecture.
