Generalized plane delta-shock waves for \(n\)-dimensional zero-pressure gas dynamics. (English) Zbl 0985.35044

Using a generalized plane wave solution the author studies a type of generalized plane delta-shock wave for the \(n\)-dimensional zero pressure gas dynamics and refines its generalized Rankin-Hugoniost relation which is a system of ordinary equations. This relation describes accurately the character of the generalized plane delta-shock: location, propagation speed and weight.
