Title:Relaxation Schemes for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:James A. Rossmanith, University of Wisconsin - Madison Department of Mathematics
Abstract:
I will briefly describe finite volume methods for solving hyperbolic conservation laws, and in particular focus on Riemann solvers. I will explain what relaxation systems are, and how these can be used to construct approximate Riemann solvers. I will mostly focus on the 1D case, but time-permitting briefly discuss multidimensional approximate Riemann solvers.
