1998 (English)In: Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations, ISSN 0749-159X, E-ISSN 1098-2426, Vol. 138, no 3, 353-365 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We introduce a method, constructed such that numerical solutions of the wave equation are well behaved when the solutions also contain discontinuities. The wave equation serves as a model problem for the Euler equations when the solution contains a contact discontinuity. Numerical computations of linear equations and the Euler equations in one and two dimensions are presented
