Thermodynamics and Hyperbolic Systems of Balance Laws in Continuum Mechanics

  • E. I. Romensky


The class of thermodynamically compatible systems of balance laws with source terms is considered. Every system of this class is hyperbolic and generated by only one thermodynamic potential. Besides, each equation of such system has a conservative form. For instance, equations of motion of elastic condutors and multiphase media are considered.
