One Dimensional Burgers' Equation


In this example we use CentPack's one-dimensional third order semi-discrete formulation, centpack_1d_SD3, to evolve the solution of the inviscid Burgers' equation

over the interval , from to , with initial conditions given by

and periodic boundary conditions,. Solution computed using 400 cells and cfl number 0.75.
