 Physical models of conservation formsuch as the compressible NavierStokes equations, and MHD and full nonlinear elasticity equationsare not uniformly parabolic, but rather hyperbolicparabolic. This memoir gives a selfcontained analysis of nonlinear interactions of dissipation waves as well as the hyperbolic aspects of general systems. It introduces the new pointwise estimates of Green functions and coupling of nonlinear waves. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in partial differential equations.
