Abstract:

In this paper the intent is to obtain, insofar as possible, an intrinsic description of shock propagation, that is to say, a description such that the motion and the evolution of the amplitude of the shock are determined by quantities known on the shock itself. Such a description would parallel the results of geometrical acoustics, but with significant differences.
