WiSe 15/16: Seminar: Shock waves
Hinweise für Studierende
Please find more information here: Shock waves.
Zusätzl. Angaben / Voraussetzungen
Interested students are supposed to be acquainted with ordinary differential equations and analysis and should furthermore possess basic knowledge about partial differential equations.
We will study shock waves (i.e. a disturbance skirting regions with tremendously different properties e.g. of density, pressure, temperature) arising in systems of 1st order PDEs modeling e.g. transport phenomena, conservation laws, gas dynamics, wave equations, traffic flows. On this way, we will learn main notions and tools for the analysis of 1st order PDEs, in particular, characteristics, weak solutions, entropy, viscosity and asymptotics of solutions.
The language of the seminar is supposed to be English (with the help of German if needed).Schließen
