@article{Springel2010EPS, title={E pur si muove: Galilean-invariant cosmological hydrodynamical simulations on a moving mesh}, author={Volker Springel}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2010}, volume={401}, pages={791-851} }

Hydrodynamic cosmological simulations at present usually employ either the Lagrangian smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) technique or Eulerian hydrodynamics on a Cartesian mesh with (optional) adaptive mesh refinement (AMR). Both of these methods have disadvantages that negatively impact their accuracy in certain situations, for example the suppression of fluid instabilities in the case of SPH, and the lack of Galilean invariance and the presence of overmixing in the case of AMR. We here…
