Canuto, V., and E. Tsiang, 1977: On the hydrodynamic expansion of a relativistic gas. Astrophys. J., 213, 27-37, doi:10.1086/155124.

Exact solutions to the relative found by Landau that do not postulate a self-similar nature are evaluated and presented graphically.

The temperature, energy density, entropy density, and total energy density when plotted against r (the distance from the center) exhibit maxima toward the end of the flow in sharp distinction to the self-similar case where such quantities montonically decrease from the center outward.
