9.3 Spectral decomposition of the 3D SRHD equations
The full spectral decomposition including the right and left eigenvectors of the Jacobian matrices
associated to the SRHD system in 3D has been first derived by Donat et al. . Previously, Martí
et al.  obtained the spectral decomposition in 1D SRHD, and Eulderink  and Font
et al.  derived the eigenvalues and right eigenvectors in 3D. The Jacobians are given by
where the state vector and the flux vector are defined in Equations (6) and (7), respectively. In
the following we explicitly give both the eigenvalues and the right and left eigenvectors of the Jacobi matrix
only (the cases i = y, z are easily obtained by symmetry considerations).
The eigenvalues of matrix are
A complete set of right-eigenvectors is
The corresponding complete set of left-eigenvectors is
where is the determinant of the matrix of right-eigenvectors, i.e.,
For an ideal gas equation of state , i.e., , and hence for .
