Formation and propagation of shock waves in nonlocal media

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


In this work we report on the quantitative investigation on the formation of dispersive shock in thermal media, we quantify the shock point along propagation and we show how it depends on the nonlinearity and the nonlocality. Our results not only confirm the finite degree of nonlocality of thermal media, and also provide a method for directly measuring it.
