Summary

 

Non-Linear Waves - M2AM

Aims

This module considers the dynamics of a continuous medium or fluid. One dimensional flows and waves are
considered in detail to model gas dynamics and water waves as well as models of traffic flow. Shock formation
and propagation in single or two by two systems of conservation laws are developed and solutions constructed
for different problems. The course concludes with the theory of water waves including progressing and standing
waves.
