7 A ug 2 00 6 DELTA SHOCK WAVE AND INTERACTIONS IN A SIMPLE MODEL CASE

Abstract

It has been observed by various authors [3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12] that the Riemann problem for certain equations from nonlinear elasticity and gasdynamics cannot be solved for all combinations of piecewise constant initial states with shock waves, rarefaction waves and contact discontinuities only. For that reason, the notion of a delta shock wave and a singular… (More)
