Irrotational Blowup of the Solution to Compressible Euler Equation

  • Takashi Suzuki


Compressible Euler equation is studied. First, we examine the validity of physical laws such as the conservations of total mass and energy and also the decay of total pressure. Then we show the non-existence of global-in-time irrotational solution with positive mass.
