Donato, Andrea and Ames, W. F. (2000) On the evolution of weak discontinuities in a state characterized by invariant solutions. Memorie scientifiche di Andrea Donato, LXXVIII. pp. 333-340.
A quasilinear hyperbolic system which has a constant state in appropriate similar variables. These constant state solutions become special non-constant state solutions in the original variables. Two physical examples from gas dynamics and elastic-plastic deformation are studied and the occurence of shock waves demonstrated
