Flux limiters fourth and sixth order high resolution method for hyperbolic conservation laws

The technique of obtaining high resolution, total variation non increasing oscillation free and explicit scalar difference scheme is derived by adding multi-limiters of antidiffusive flux to a first order scheme.

On the convergence of high resolution methods with multiple time scales for hyperbolic conservation laws

A maximum principle and the TVD property are verified for general advective flux and an entropy condition is verified which, with sufficient limiting, guarantees convergence to the entropy solution for convex flux.

Simple High-Order Bounded Convection Scheme to Model Discontinuities

A new high-order-accurate convection scheme that satisfies the total variation diminishing (TVD) principle and is based on nonlinear functional relations between normalized variables is presented.

A New Time-space Accurate Scheme for Hyperbolic Problems I: Quasi-explicit Case

A new discretization scheme for hyperbolic systems of conservations laws satisfies the TVD property and relies on the new high-resolution mechanism which is compatible with the genuinely multidimensional approach proposed recently.

Second Order Positive Schemes by means of Flux Limiters for the Advection Equation

In this paper, we study rst and second order positive numerical methods for the advection equation. In particular, we consider the direct dis- cretization of the model problem and comment on its



Riemann Solvers, the Entropy Condition, and Difference

A condition on the numerical flux for semidiscrete approximations to scalar, nonconvex conservation laws is introduced, and shown to guarantee convergence to the correct physical solution. An equal...

Numerical Viscosity and the Entropy Condition for Conservative Difference Schemes

It is shown that difference schemes containing more numerical viscosity will necessarily converge to the unique, physically relevant weak solution of the approximated conservation equation, and entropy satisfying convergence follows for E schemes - those containing more Numbers than Godunov's scheme.

High Resolution Schemes and the Entropy Condition

A systematic procedure for constructing semidiscrete, second order accurate, variation diminishing, five-point band width, approximations to scalar conservation laws, is presented. These schemes are

Stable and entropy satisfying approximations for transonic flow calculations

Finite difference approximations for the small disturbance equation of transonic flow are developed and analyzed. New schemes of the Cole-Murman type are presented fpr which nonlinear stability is

High resolution applications of the Osher upwind scheme for the Euler equations

The 'Osher' scheme was introduced by Osher (1981). It represents an upwind finite-difference method for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, including the Euler equations. In studies conducted by

On convergence of monotone finite difference schemes with variable spatial differencing

Monotone finite difference schemes used to approximate solutions of scalar conservation laws have the advantage that these approximations can be proved to converge to the proper solution as the mesh
