The jump conditions at surface of discontinuity are derived for the two-fluid model of helium II from postulated balance laws for the total energy, the linear momentum of the superfluid and from an entropy production inequality. These conditions are used to discuss a contact surface and the propagation of a weak shock. © 1973 Martinus Nijhoff.
