Central Station

Welcome to Central Station, a collection of resources on high-resolution central schemes. The family of central schemes offers "black-box" solvers for a wide variety of problems governed by multi-dimensional systems of non-linear conservation laws and related Partial Differential Equations (PDEs).

Along with an extensive archive of publications focused on the development of central schemes and their application to a wide range of scientific problems, we present here CentPack -- a highly adaptable collection of C++ routines that implement several high-order central schemes for general hyperbolic systems in one and two space dimensions. Full documentation for the download, compilation and execution of CentPack and examples are also provided.

CentPy -- a Python version of CentPack written by Anil Zenginoglu, can be found here (with ReadMe file). This includes CentPy Examples and Animations with a full list of animations, and examples for setting parameters and equations
