In ordinary fluid dynamics,

**discontinuities**of two entirely different kinds arepossible: shock waves and tangential

**discontinuities**. t Mathematically, the twotypes occur because some of the boundary conditions can be written as the

Although tangential and rotational

are also

such that v and H are tangential in direction and continuous in magnitude.

Although tangential and rotational

**discontinuities**form two different types, thereare also

**discontinuities**having the properties of both. These**discontinuities**aresuch that v and H are tangential in direction and continuous in magnitude.
