A Nonconservative Numerical Approach for Hyperbolic Systems with Source
Terms: the Well-Balanced Schemes
We present an introduction to the Well-Balanced schemes in both cases of
scalar and systems of nonhomogeneous balance laws. Our construction is based
on a reformulation of the source terms as nonconservative products. Some simple
self-similar Riemann solvers and thus most Godunov-type schemes can be deduced.
We provide also a few relevant computational results.
