Abstract : A change from subsonics to supersonics involves a change in the type of potential equations of gasdynamics and magnetogasdynamics. This makes a uniform solution impossible. In the corresponding variational principle this difficulty does not arise. Thus, a uniform method of solution is possible for the subsonic domain as well as for the supersonic domain. (Author)
