Nonlinear Hyperbolic Equations

  • Michael E. Taylor
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 117)


Here we study nonlinear hyperbolic equations, with emphasis on quasi-linear systems arising from continuum mechanics, describing such physical phenomena as vibrating strings and membranes and the motion of a compressible fluid, such as air.
