Godunov-mixed methods for advective flow problems in one space dimension. (English) Zbl 0741.65068

The author treats numerical solution of the initial-boundary value problem for the nonlinear diffusion equation \(s_ t+f(s)_ x=(a s_ x)_ x\) using a time-splitting method in this interesting paper. A high- order Godunov technique is used for addressing the advective component of the flow and a mixed finite element method is used for the diffusion step. Error estimates are given as well as stability results. Numerical results are described, and an indication of higher dimensional extensions made.
