Acceleration waves

Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 177)


The general theory of acceleration waves in continuum mechanics is covered in detail in the research review articles of (Chen, 1973) and (McCarthy, 1972), see also the accounts in the books of (Fabrizio and Morro, 2003), (Iesan and Scalia, 1996), (Ogden, 1997) and (Straughan, 2008). (Truesdell and Toupin, 1960) and (Truesdell and Noll, 1992) cover many aspects of acceleration waves and singular surfaces in general. We now include an account of some recent studies employing acceleration waves in theories of heat transport associated with second sound.
