Linearization of the Riemann problem for a triangular system of conservation laws and delta shock wave formation process

Darko Mitrovic, Vladimir Danilov, Velibor Bojkovic

Abstract: We generalize procedure from [a] on the case of more general triangular system of conservation laws arising from so called generalized pressureless gas dynamics. Using the weak asymptotic method, more precisely nonlinear superposition law [b], we approximate the nonlinear system by a linear one. Then, we can use usual method of characteristics to find approximate solution to the original system. As a consequence, we shall see how delta shock wave naturally arises along the characteristics.
