Title:Interactions of Strong Shocks
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Robin Young, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Abstract:
We consider shock waves of arbitrary strength in the p-system of isentropic gas dynamics. After describing shock waves and defining wave strengths, I'll give an estimate for the interaction of two shocks. This includes upper and lower bounds, and is uniform in the reference state (up to vacuum).
