Numerical methods which deal with hyperbolic differential equations will be discussed and analytically analyzed. In particular, the following topics are covered:
  • approximation methods for hyperbolic problems,
  • theory of weak solutions and entropy solutions,
  • consistency, stability and convergence,
  • (if possible) approximation methods for systems of conservation equations.

Further literature will be announced in the lecture; Exercise material is provided.
