A universal solver for hyperbolic equations by cubic-polynomial interpolation. II: Two- and three-dimensional solvers. (English) Zbl 0991.65522

Summary: A new numerical method is proposed for multidimensional hyperbolic equations. The scheme uses a cubic spatial profile within grids, and is described in an explicit finite-difference form by assuming that both the physical quantity and its spatial derivative obey the master equation. The method gives a stable and less diffusive result than the old methods without any flux limiter. Extension to nonlinear equations with nonadvection terms is straightforward.
