### Global entropy solutions to exothermically reacting, compressible Euler equations

Abstract:

The global existence of entropy solutions is established for the compressible Euler equations for one-dimensional or plane-wave flow of an ideal gas, which undergoes a one-step exothermic chemical reaction under Arrhenius-type kinetics. We assume that the reaction rate is bounded away from zero and the total variation of the initial data is bounded by a parameter that grows arbitrarily large as the equation of state converges to that of an isothermal gas. The heat released by the reaction cau...
