On the Integral Equation Method

Conference paper
Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


The integral equation method has been discussed in three papers at this symposium and it might seem a little disappointing to note, especially for the case with shocks, that the method has not yet reached a satisfactory stage of completeness. However, the solution method itself has revealed various important features which gives a strong cause for further development. The purpose of the present comments is to voice a word of optimism in this respect.
