Excerpt from High Resolution Schemes for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws This paper presents a class of new explicit second order accurate finite difference schemes for the computation of weak solutions of hyperbolic conservation laws. These highly nlinear schemes are obtained by applying a scillatory first order accurate scheme to an appropriately modified flux function. The so derived second order accurate schemes achieve high resolution while preserving the robustness of the original scillatory first order accurate scheme. Numerical experiments are presented to demonstrate the performance of these new schemes. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
