8/9 Week 9: Interaction Coefficients

To find out what happens when two shockwaves meet, we must have a way of measuring this interaction. The Lie Brackets are one part of this measurement. The interaction coefficient is a function of three vectors. It is the dot product of a left eigenvector with the Lie Bracket of two right Eigenvectors.

IC[i,j,k] = Li (Dot) LB[Rj,Rk]

The interaction coefficient appears in many papers by our advisor and in the literature. We include it in our analysis.
