## Abstract

We discuss the problem of computing the distributional divergence of a vector field of the form h(w)B, where h is a smooth scalar function and B is a BV vector field, knowing the distributional divergence of all vector fields w_iB, where w_i are the components of w.

We present partial results on this problem, conjectures, and links with other problems related to the SBV regularity of solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equations and systems of conservation laws, and a conjecture recently made by Bressan
