Published by Cambridge University Press in 2002.
This is a revised and
expanded version of
Numerical Methods for Conservation Laws,
ETH Lecture Notes, BirkhauserVerlag, Basel, 1990.
ISBN 3764324643.
This page is out of date but contains the original Clawpack v4.3 codes.
See the new book webpage
with additional materials,
including links to YouTube videos and slides to accompany the book.


Simulations and Software:
The pages below for each chapter may contain errata and pointers to other
relevant webpages. In many cases they also contain more figures and perhaps
animations illustrating examples from the text and related problems.
From these pages you can also download computer codes for the examples
presented in the text. Most of these are fortran programs based on
CLAWPACK, and it will
first be necessary to download
and install that package in order to use them.
WARNING: Some of the mfiles in these examples were modified in April, 2006
to conform to the matlab scripts in Versions 4.2 and 4.3 of CLAWPACK.
If you are using an older version of CLAWPACK you should update your matlab
scripts.
These examples should work with Clawpack 4.3.
New versions of Clawpack are available!
Some of these have been adapted to work with
Newer versions of Clawpack, see
the
gallery for more information.
