Abstract: For two classes of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws *new definitions of a **-shock wave type solution* are introduced. These two definitions give natural generalizations of the classical definition of the weak solutions. It is *relevant* to the notion of -shocks. The *weak asymptotics method* developed by the authors is used to describe the propagation of -shock waves to the three types of systems of conservation laws and derive the corresponding Rankine-Hugoniot conditions for -shocks.
