    Event Description

    Shock wave discontinuities in fluids arise in diverse scenarios such as imploding cavitation bubbles in water, nuclear explosions and galaxy formation. In this talk the early history of shock dynamics will be told as a ‘Tale of two Cities’ Cambridge and Paris. A more modern theory including non-classical shocks will then also be presented as a ’Tale of two Cities’ - Vienna and Dublin.
