Semi-discrete central-upwind schemes with reduced dissipation for Hamilton-Jacobi equations Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduce a new family of Godunov-type semi-discrete central schemes for multidimensional Hamilton-Jacobi equations. These schemes are a less dissipative generalization of the central-upwind schemes that have been recently proposed in Kurganov, Noelle and Petrova (2001, SIAM J. Sci. Comput., 23, pp. 707-740). We provide the details of the new family of methods in one, two, and three space dimensions, and then verify their expected low-dissipative property in a variety of examples.
