Exercise 18.4
2. Given that the differential equation
+ () = 0
Has a discontinuous solution and that () is a continuous function of , find the jump
condition that must be satisfied by its shock solution.

As () = (()), the PDE above can be written


+ (()) = 0.
To allow discontinuity, integral representation is used over an interval 1 < < 2 .
Integrating equation above over the interval gives

+ (()) = 0

Provided is differentiable with respect to , the time derivative can be taken outside the
first integral, which then becomes

Has a centered simple wave solution. Generalize the approach suggested in Exercise 4 to
find the analytical solution for the centered simple wave, stating the region in the (, )plane occupied by the centered simple wave solution.
Given that the differential equation
+ () = 0
() =

So we can find that


() =

From the above equation we can find the jump condition experienced by a discontinuous
solution of this PDE across the discontinuity at = () becomes

the PDE followed by cancellation of t and (), shows that


() = (, ) = ( 2)/
The solution (, ) in the region > 0 bounded by characteristic = 2 and = + 2.
This solution in S resolves the initial discontinuity immediately and joins the constant
solution to the left and right in a continuous manner, which is called a centered simple
wave with its center located at the origin 2.

The eigenvalues of A are 1 = -2, 2 = 2, and 3 = 2, so from the classification of the PDE,
the above equation is seen to be hyperbolic type.
An orthogonal matrix Q can always be associated with A in such a way that Q TAQ = D,
where D is a diagonal matrix with the eigenvalues of A as the elements along its leading
diagonal.
