# PDEMOC15

From Example Problems

Consider with the IC

Find the weak solution.

When , if then but the characteristic line (see PDEMOC14) is . Therefore . Now find the line where the shock occurs.

The jump condition is defined as in PDEMOC14.

To integrate with respect to , treat everything but as a constant and you'll see that it's a log:

The weak solution is
