Survey of several finite difference methods for systems of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws
Survey of several finite difference methods for systems of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws The finite difference methods of Godunov, Hyman, Lax and Wendroff (two-step), MacCormack, Rusanov, the upwind scheme, the hybrid scheme of Harten and Zwas, the antidiffusion method of Boris and Book, the artificial compression method of Harten, and Glimm's method, a random choice method, are discussed. The methods are used to integrate the one-dimensional Eulerian form of the equations of gas dynamics in Cartesian coordinates for an inviscid, nonheat-conducting fluid. The test problem was a typical shock tube problem. The results are compared and demonstrate that Glimm's method has several advantages.
