This note is devoted to the study of the global existence of a shock wave for the supersonic flow past a curved wedge. When the curved wedge is a small perturbation of a straight wedge and the angle of the wedge is less than some critical value, we show that a shock attached at the wedge will exist globally.

Rapid solidification and crystallization are associated with overcooling under dynamic compressions in the region of rather high...

    Our purpose is to provide the explanation of the successive waves which can occur in the general case when a wave propagates through a material with a non-convex equation of state. We show that decrease of the sound speed introduces isentropic compression waves (ICW) inside shock waves (SW) and...
