Godunov scheme

(Godunov's scheme)
(computational fluid dynamics method)

The Godunov scheme (or Godunov's scheme) is a method for calculating solutions to fluid dynamics partial differential equations. It is similar to (or a variant of) the finite volume method. It has the advantage of being able to incorporate certain efficient approximation algorithms to deal with the boundaries between volumes.
