Convergence of generalized MUSCL schemes. (English) Zbl 0627.35061
Semidiscrete generalizations of the second order extension of Godunov’s scheme, known as the MUSCL (monotonic upstream centered scheme for conservation law) scheme, are constructed, starting with any three point “E” scheme. They are used to approximate scalar conservation laws in one space dimension. For convex conservation laws, each member of a wide class is proven to be a convergent approximation to the correct physical solution. Comparison with another class of high resolution convergent schemes is made.
