Abstract : This report summarizes the results of the research project to study the wave curves for the one-dimensional Riemann problem which arises in the problem of plane waves in isotropic elastic materials. The concept of wave curves is to be extended to the two-dimensional Riemann problem which arises in the problem of oblique shocks impinging on the boundary. Satisfactory results are obtained and are reported. Keywords: Simple waves; Shock waves; Hyperbolic systems.
