Talk Abstract
Positive Schemes for Solving Symmetric Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws in Many Space Dimensions

Peter D. Lax, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences

A theorem of Friedrichs on the stability of difference schemes woth positive matrix coefficients is combined with a numerical switch to produce stable second order accurate schemes.

Joint work with Xu-Dong Liu.
