Abstract : The determination of non-steady one-dimensional flows can be reduced to solving certain Monge-Ampere equations. Comparison of any two solutions of the same MA-equation shows that the map of one ut-plane onto the other preserves area. A classical parametric representation of all area-preserving maps can be combined with a particular solution of an MA-equation to produce the general solution. Particular solutions can easily be constructed for perfect gases and for a vast number of more general equations of state. (Author)
