Systems of Quasilinear Equations and Their Applications to Gas Dynamics

Hardback
This book is essentially a new edition, revised and augmented by results of the last decade, of the work of the same title published in 1968 by 'Nauka'. It is devoted to mathematical questions of gas dynamics. Topics covered include Foundations of the Theory of Systems of Quasilinear Equations of Hyperbolic Type in Two Independent Variables; Classical and Generalized Solutions of One-Dimensional Gas Dynamics; Difference Methods for Solving the Equations of Gas Dynamics; and Generalized Solutions of Systems of Quasilinear Equations of Hyperbolic Type.
