Abstract: We study the Riemann problem of relativistic Euler system for rarefied monatomic and diatomic gases when the constitutive equation for the energy is the Synge equation that is the only one compatible with the relativistic kinetic theory. The Synge equation is involved with modified Bessel functions of the second kind and this makes the relativistic Euler system quite complex. Based on delicate estimates of the modified Bessel functions of the second kind, we provide a detailed investigation of basic hyperbolic properties and the structure of elementary waves, especially for the structure of shock waves and in this way, the mathematical theory of the Riemann problem for these relativistic Euler system, which is analogous to the corresponding theory of the classical ones, is rigorously provided.
