A discontinuity-capturing operator is developed for the ’streamline’ formulation of advective-diffusive systems extending previous work on the scalar advection-diffusion equation. The operator provides a mechanism for exerting control over strong gradients in the discrete solution which appear, for example, in boundary and interior layers.
