Readers should have background in basic shock wave concepts, including the equations for an oblique shock in a steady flow of a perfect gas. The book is unique for its presentation of a new theory for the tangential and normal derivatives of flow properties (such as pressure and velocity) just downstream of an infinitesimally thin, curved shock wave.
It can not exist in contact with water, nor contain water, and resembles a perfect gas; called also surcharged steam, anhydrous steam and steam gas and sometimes also applied to dry steam.
[2, 3] used the method of nonstandard analysis developed by Robinson [4] to derive the jump conditions for converging shock wave in a perfect gas. Baty and Tucker [5] used the same method to derive the jump conditions for one-dimensional, diverging, magnetogasdynamic shock waves emerging on the surface of a star.
