  title={Notions on Hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations},
  author={Eleuterio F. Toro},
In this chapter we study some elementary properties of a class of hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). The selected aspects of the equations are those thought to be essential for the analysis of the equations of fluid flow and the implementation of numerical methods. For general background on PDEs we recommend the book by John [185] and particularly the one by Zachmanoglou and Thoe [425]. The discretisation techniques studied in this book are strongly based on the underlying… CONTINUE READING
