In this article, we investigate the global existence and asymptotic behavior of classical solutions to Goursat problem for diagonalizable quasilinear hyperbolic system. Under the assumptions that system is strictly hyperbolic and linearly degenerate, we obtain the global existence and uniqueness of C1 solutions with the bounded L1 ∩ L∞ norm of the boundary data as well as their derivatives. Based on the existence result, we can prove that when t tends to in nity, the solutions approach a combination of piece-wised C1 traveling wave solutions. As the important example, we apply the results to the chaplygin gas system.
