On the Front Tracking Algorithm

Paolo Baiti and Helge Kristian Jenssen

Abstract: In this paper we present an improved version of the front-tracking algorithm for systems of conservation laws. The formulation and the theoretical analysis are here somewhat simpler than in previous algorithms. At the same time, our version leads to a more efficient numerical scheme.
