Abstract

Global composition of several time steps of the two-step Lax-Wendroff scheme followed by a Lax-Friedrichs step seems to enhance the best features of both, although it is only first order accurate. We show this by means of some examples of one-dimensional shallow water flow over an obstacle. In two dimensions we present a new version of Lax-Friedrichs and an associated second order predictor-corrector method. Composition of these schemes is shown to be effective and efficient for some two-dimensional Riemann problems and for Noh's infinite strength cylindrical shock problem. We also show comparable results for composition of the predictor-corrector scheme with a modified second order accurate weighted essentially nonoscillatory (WENO) scheme. That composition is second order but is more efficient and has better symmetry properties than WENO alone. For scalar advection in two dimensions the optimal stability of the new predictor-corrector scheme is shown using computer algebra. We also show that the generalization of this scheme to three dimensions is unstable, but by using sampling we are able to show that the composites are suboptimally stable.
