Transonic shocks for Euler-Poisson system and related problems

Abstract: Euler-Poisson system models various physical phenomena including the propagation of electrons in submicron semiconductor devices and plasmas, and the biological transport of ions for channel proteins. I will explain difference between Euler system and Euler-Poisson system and mathematical difficulties arising due to this difference. And, recent results about subsonic flow and transonic flow for Euler-Poisson system will be presented. This talk is based on collaboration with Ben Duan and Chunjing Xie.
