Stability of multi-dimensional phase transitions in a van der Waals fluid. (English) Zbl 0928.76015
The paper treats the Euler equations governing the isothermal compressible fluid with pressure law permitting the coexistence of liquid and vapor phases. The author considers weak solutions which involve propagating discontinuities connecting states in liquid phase to states in vapor phase. The dynamic stability of such propagating discontinuities, the so-called stability of dynamic phase transition, is also considered.
