Integration of equations for onedimensional shock waves
Abstract
Two cases are discussed concerning the selfsimilar solutions of secondorder nonlinear partial differential equations. The first case concerns the hyperbolic equations in gas dynamics which describe the propagation of an unsteady plane shock wave, whereas the other one deals with the generalized parabolic equation for the nonlinear skin effect.
