The connection between gas dynamics and differential geometry is discussed. Some history of boundary value problems for systems of conservation laws is first given. Then the mathematical formulation of compressible gas dynamics, especially the subsonic and transonic flows past an obstacle (such as an airfoil), is provided. Some recent results on transonic… CONTINUE READING
