On the relation between the upwind-differencing schemes of Godunov, Engquist-Osher and Roe. (English) Zbl 0547.65065

On the basis of the inviscid Burgers equation the differencing schemes, presented here, are compared. It follows from the comparison that when conservative differencing schemes are described there are no reasons for one to reject the Godunov scheme. Nevertheless, the scheme of Roe with its modification is simpler than the Godunov scheme. The Godunov scheme, applied to nonlinear hyperbolic Euler schemes, economizes the computing memory, and the scheme of Engquist-Osher the time for computation, since it is not needed for making iterations on every time level. The conclusions about the modified Roe scheme are rather beforehand because of lacking a sufficient quantity of numerical experiments.
