Positivity-Preserving Analysis of Numerical Schemes for Ideal Magnetohydrodynamics
TLDR
This paper presents the first rigorous PP analysis of conservative schemes with the Lax--Friedrichs (LF) flux for 1D and multidimensional ideal MHD and establishes a theoretical connection between the PP property and a discrete divergence-free (DDF) condition.
A Provably Positive Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Multidimensional Ideal Magnetohydrodynamics
TLDR
This paper develops uniformly high-order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) schemes which provably preserve the positivity of density and pressure for multidimensional ideal MHD.
Positivity-preserving DG and central DG methods for ideal MHD equations
Provably positive high-order schemes for ideal magnetohydrodynamics: analysis on general meshes
TLDR
This paper proposes and analyzes arbitrarily high-order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) and finite volume methods which provably preserve the positivity of density and pressure for the ideal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) on general meshes and proves that the standard DG and finiteVolume methods with the proposed HLL flux are PP, under a condition accessible by a PP limiter.
Positivity-preserving hybrid DG/FV method with subcell resolution for compressible Euler equations with stiff source terms
TLDR
The approach is able to maximize the multiscale capability of the DG method by achieving both positivity-preserving and oscillation-free solution in the subgrid level and a priori detection and computation with hyperbolic tangent function prevent the occurrence of negativity in the flux evaluation.
Provably Positive Central DG Schemes via Geometric Quasilinearization for Ideal MHD Equations
TLDR
This paper presents the first rigorous PP analysis of the central discontinuous Galerkin (CDG) methods and construct arbitrarily high-order provably PP CDG schemes for ideal MHD, and proves in theory the PP property of the new multidimensional CDG scheme under a CFL condition.

Maintaining Pressure Positivity in Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations
Higher order Godunov schemes for solving the equations of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) have recently become available. Because such schemes update the total energy, the pressure is a derived variable.

Second-Order-accurate Schemes for Magnetohydrodynamics with Divergence-free Reconstruction
While working on an adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) scheme for divergence-free magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), Balsara discovered a unique strategy for the reconstruction of divergence-free vector fields.

TLDR
This paper presents a staggered mesh strategy which directly uses the properly upwinded fluxes that are provided by a Godunov scheme, and shows that a scheme that involves a collocation of magnetic field variables that is different from the one traditionally favored in the design of higher orderGodunov schemes can nevertheless offer the same robust and accurate performance.
