A stable and high-order accurate upwind finite difference discretization of the 3D linearized Euler equations is presented. The discretization allows point sources, a varying atmosphere and curved topography. The advective terms are discretized using recently published upwind summation-by-parts (SBP) operators and the boundary conditions are imposed using a penalty technique. The resulting discretization leads to an explicit ODE system. The accuracy and stability properties are verified for a… 
Multiblock SBP-SAT Methodology of Symmetric Matrix Form of Elastic Wave Equations on Curvilinear Grids
A stable and accurate finite-difference discretization of first-order elastic wave equations is derived in this work. To simplify the origin and proof of the formulas, a symmetric matrix form (SMF)
Modelling the Shuttle Movement of a Seismic Airgun
A provably stable and high-order accurate semi-discrete finite difference scheme modeling the shuttle movement of a seismic airgun is derived using the SBP-SAT method. The one dimensional airgun mo
Approximating moving point sources in hyperbolic partial differential equations
A source discretization is derived that meets these requirements and is applicable for source trajectories that do not touch domain boundaries and proves design-order convergence of the numerical solution for the one-dimensional advection equation.
Stable Symmetric Matrix Form Framework for the Elastic Wave Equation Combined with Perfectly Matched Layer and Discretized in the Curve Domain
A semi-discrete approximation based on ADE CFS-MPML in which the curve domain is discretized using the upwind summation-by-parts (SBP) operators, and where the boundary conditions are enforced weakly using the simultaneous approximation terms (SAT).

High order finite difference approximations are derived for a onedimensional model of the shifted wave equation written in second-order form. The domain is discretized using fully compatible
Higher-order spatial discretization for turbulent aerodynamic computations
Results for several grid convergence studies show that this higher-order approach produces a substantial reduction in numerical error in the computation of single- and multielement aerodynamic models, both subsonic and transonic.
A fourth-order accurate finite-difference scheme for the computation of elastic waves
Abstract A finite-difference model for elastic waves is introduced. The model is based on the first-order system of equations for the velocities and stresses. The differencing is fourth-order

A Dual Consistent Finite Difference Method with Narrow Stencil Second Derivative Operators
This work generalizes results shown that SBP–SAT finite difference methods can yield superconvergent functional output if the boundary conditions are imposed such that the discretization is dual consistent, to include a broader range of boundary conditions and penalty parameters.
