Abstract : The law of conservation of momentum, energy, and mass, the continuity of the tangential component of the electric field strength measured in the moving coordinate system, and the continuity of the normal component of the magnetic field are derived from the basic plasma equations. Parallel and oblique shock waves are considered. The evolutionary condition and the shock polar diagram are discussed.
