SHOCK RELATIONS IN A DENSE HIGH TEMPERATURE GAS

Shock relations are established for the dense high temperature gas, introducing relativistic concepts. It is assumed that the self-consistent static electric field does not play a significant role in the shock relations. From these relations, the heating effect due to the passage of the shock waves through a degenerate gas is deduced explicitly, indicating large heating effects. The results may be of significance in understanding the supernova phenomenon.
