Description of the multi-dimensional finite volume solver EULER. (English) Zbl 1090.65532

Summary: This paper is aimed at the description of the multi-dimensional finite volume solver EULER, which has been developed for the numerical solution of the compressible Euler equations during several last years. The present overview of numerical schemes and the explanation of numerical techniques and tricks which have been used for EULER could be of certain interest not only for registered users but also for numerical mathematicians who have decided to implement a finite volume solver themselves. This solver has been used also for the computation of numerical examples presented in other papers of the authors.
