Filled with practical examples, Quasilinear Hyperbolic Systems, Compressible Flows, and Waves presents a self-contained discussion of quasilinear hyperbolic equations and systems with applications. It emphasizes nonlinear theory and introduces some of the most active research in the field. After linking continuum mechanics and quasilinear partial differential equations, the book discusses the scalar conservation laws and hyperbolic systems in two independent variables. Using the method of characteristics and singular surface theory, the author then presents the evolutionary behavior of weak and mild discontinuities in a quasilinear hyperbolic system. He also explains how to apply weakly nonlinear geometrical optics in nonequilibrium and stratified gas flows and demonstrates the power, generality, and elegance of group theoretic methods for solving Euler equations of gasdynamics involving shocks. The final chapter deals with the kinematics of a shock of arbitrary strength in three dimensions. With a focus on physical applications, this text takes readers on a journey through this fascinating area of applied mathematics. It provides the essential mathematical concepts and techniques to understand the phenomena from a theoretical standpoint and to solve a variety of physical problems.

This book is dedicated to the recent developments in RET with the aim to explore polyatomic gas, dense gas and mixture of gases in non-equilibrium. In particular we present the theory of dense gases with 14 fields, which reduces to the Navier-Stokes Fourier classical theory in the parabolic limit. Molecular RET with an arbitrary number of field-variables for polyatomic gases is also discussed and the theory is proved to be perfectly compatible with the kinetic theory in which the distribution function depends on an extra variable that takes into account a molecule’s internal degrees of freedom. Recent results on mixtures of gases with multi-temperature are presented together with a natural definition of the average temperature. The qualitative analysis and in particular, the existence of the global smooth solution and the convergence to equilibrium are also studied by taking into account the fact that the differential systems are symmetric hyperbolic. Applications to shock and sound waves are analyzed together with light scattering and heat conduction and the results are compared with experimental data. Rational extended thermodynamics (RET) is a thermodynamic theory that is applicable to non-equilibrium phenomena. It is described by differential hyperbolic systems of balance laws with local constitutive equations. As RET has been strictly related to the kinetic theory through the closure method of moment hierarchy associated to the Boltzmann equation, the applicability range of the theory has been restricted within rarefied monatomic gases. The book represents a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers, offering powerful models for potential applications like satellites reentering the atmosphere, semiconductors and nano-scale phenomena.

This book introduces the recent developments in the subject of quasilinear hyperbolic systems with dissipation, such as frictional damping, relaxation, viscosity and heat diffusion. The mathematical theory behind this subject is emphasized in two ways. One emphasis is based on understanding the influence of the dissipation mechanism on the qualitative behavior of solutions, such as the nonlinear diffusive phenomena caused by damping, and other phenomena (including phase transition) for the case with viscosity and heat diffusion. The second emphasis is to take the systems with the dissipation mechanism as an approach to approximating the corresponding system of quasilinear hyperbolic conservation laws – the zero-limit relaxation, or the zero-limit viscosity, and the related topic of nonlinear stability of waves. Contents:Frictional Damping: Globally Defined Classical Solutions and Their Nonlinear Diffusive PhenomenaFrictional Damping: Globally Defined Weak Solutions and The Nonlinear Diffusive PhenomenaRelaxationThe Influence of Dissipation Mechanism on the Qualitative Behavior of SolutionsVanishing Viscosity and Nonlinear Stability of Waves Readership: Postgraduate students, mathematicians, physicists and engineers in theoretical and numerical analysis of partial differentiation equations and continuum mechanics. keywords:Problem of Vanishing Viscosity;Relaxation;Dissipation;Large-Time Behaviour;Nonlinear Stability;Zero Relaxation Limit

This book covers compressible flow however the authors also show how wave phenomena in electromagnetism and solid mechanics can be treated using similar mathematical methods. It caters to the needs of the modern student by providing the tools necessary for a mathematical analysis of most kinds of waves liable to be encountered in modern science and technology. At the same time emphasis is laid on the physical background and modeling that requires these tools.

This volume contains the proceedings from the International Conference on Nonlinear Evolutionary Partial Differential Equations held in Beijing in June 1993. The topic for the conference was selected because of its importance in the natural sciences and for its mathematical significance. Discussion topics include conservation laws, dispersion waves, Einstein's theory of gravitation, reaction-diffusion equations, the Navier-Stokes equations, and more. New results were presented and are featured in this volume. Titles in this series are co-published with International Press, Cambridge, MA.
