Chi-Wang Shu (Brown University)
In this course we will give an introduction to conservative
short capturing numerical methods for solving multi-dimensional
systems of conservation laws. High order accurate finite
difference, finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin finite
element methods will be covered. We will start with the
basic algorithm issues in a simple scalar one dimensional
setting and then describe the generalization to multi-dimensional
systems. A comparison among these different numerical methods
will be provided.
