In this paper we discuss the complex variable formulation of compressible fluid flow equations and its application to inverse problems. This paper shoud be viewed as an attempt to extend the complex variable approach (CVA) to compressible fluid flow computation. As we know the success of CVA with incompressible flow lies in the Cauchy-Riemann formulation of the fluid flow equations. This suggests that a similar formulation for compressible fluid flow equations may prove useful for many… CONTINUE READING
