Asymptotic analysis of contact discontinuities



We study the perturbation of a contact discontinuity by a small amplitude, rapidly oscillating wave train. Under a suitable stability assumption the perturbed solution is still a contact discontinuity, and we give its asymptotic development, as well as that of the contact curve, in terms of the wavelength of the perturbation
