Toro, E.F. (author), Dumbser, M. (author), Titarev, V.A. (author), Käser, M. (author)The corner stone of arbitrary high order schemes (ADER schemes) is the solution of the derivative Riemann problem at the element interfaces, a generalization of the classical Riemann problem first used by Godunov in 1959 to construct a firstorder upwind numerical method for hyperbolic systems. The derivative Riemann problem extends the possible...conference paper 2006

Titarev, V.A. (author), Romenski, E.I. (author), Toro, E.F. (author)Numerical methods for solving nonlinear systems of hyperbolic conservation laws via finite volume methods or discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods require, as the building block, a monotone numerical flux. The simplest approach for providing a monotone numerical utilizes a symmetric stencil and does not explicitly make use of wave...conference paper 2006

Hidalgo, A. (author), Toro, E.F. (author), Conde, C. (author)Nonlinear acoustic waves have many applications in very different fields of industry. The problem considered in this work consists of predicting the behaviour of gas filling a one dimensional tube when suffering the action of very high frequency waves. The numerical technique applied to solve this problem is a third order finite volume method...conference paper 2006

Castro, C.E. (author), Toro, E.F. (author)Compressible multiphase models have been studied for a long time inspired on different applications in diverse engineering areas. Solutions for these equations are not simple and researcher have spent much time trying to bring answers. The possibility to properly solve these equations and perform real simulations represent a very ambitious goal....conference paper 2006

Vignoli, G. (author), Toro, E.F. (author), Titarev, V. (author)In this paper we develop one dimensional nonlinear ADER schemes for the shallow water system with source terms. In contrast to conventional schemes we adopt a formulation given in terms of the free surface elevation and water discharge. Data reconstruction is performed using ENO polynomials both for the conservative variables and for the bottom...conference paper 2006

Titarev, V.A. (author), Toro, E.F. (author)In this paper we generalizew the semianalytical method16 for solving the Derivative Riemann Problem to hyperbolic systems for which the Riemann problem solution is not available. As an application example we implement the new derivative Riemann solver in the highorder finitevolume ADER advection schemes. We provide numerical examples for two...conference paper 2006

Toro, E.F. (author)Very simple linearisations for the solution to the Riemann problem for the timedependent and for the steady supersonic Euler equations are presented. When used locally in conjunction with Godunovtype methods, computing savings by a factor of about four, relative to the use of exact Riemann solvers, can be achieved. For severe flow regimes...report 1991

Toro, E.F. (author)Paper presented at the 9th GAMM Conference on Numerical Methods of Fluid Mechanics, Laussane, Switzerland, September 1991. We present Numerical Viscosity Functions, or NVFs, for use with Riemannproblem based shockcapturing methods as applied to viscous flows. In particular, viscous flux limiters are derived.

Toro, E.F. (author)Three topics on modern shock capturing methods for the timedependent Euler equations of Gas Djméimics are addressed. First we present the Weighted Average Flux Method (or WAF), one of several Riemêinnproblem based shock capturing methods. Then we deal with the Riemann problem. We present an efficient exact Riemann solver, a robust non...report 1991

Toro, E.F. (author)A practical description of the Random Choice Method (RCM) on nonstaggered grids is presented. The original idea appears to be due to Colella (1982). The approach is much simpler than the staggered grid version of RCM, which is the one traditionally used. It also offers a number of advantages with regards to use of nonregular meshes in space...report 1987
