Transonic shock waves and free boundary problems for the nonlinear wave system

Abstract:

In this Thesis, we study the problem of Shock Reflection-Diffraction by a Wedge for the Nonlinear Wave System. Shock Reflection-Diffraction problems in Fluid Dynamics, and the corresponding wave patterns have been studied by many authors, via many different analytical, experimental and numerical methods.

The Nonlinear Wave System is obtained from the Full Euler System, by making the assumption that the inertial terms are small. It has many similar properties (such as the struct...
