We provide a bird's eye view of a selected topics in approximate solution of nonlinear conservation laws and related time dependent equations. We begin with a discussion on regularity spaces in theory and computation. We will continue with a presentation of the class of high-resolution central schemes. We will discuss the issue of entropy stability and conclude with ongoing research on constrained transport.
