Summary: Review of basic theoretical aspects of hyperbolic conservation laws and numerical concepts for hyperbolic equations. Finite volume methods for one-dimensional systems. Godunov’s method. The Riemann problem and approximate Riemann solvers. Godunov-type and TVD finite volume methods for theshallow water equations. Asymptotic preserving staggered semi-implicit schemes for the compressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations (all Mach number schemes) and their higher-order extension via IMEX. Explicit and implicit schemes for diffusion. Implicit schemes for nonlinear parabolic equations (nonlinear heat conduction, Stefan problem, Richards’ equation). Extension to multiple space dimensions on Cartesian grids. Numerical methods for free surface flows coupled with sediment transport and permeable bottom to account for soil infiltration (shallow-water-Exner system, shallow water equations coupled with the Richards equation). Ecomorphodynamics with applications to sediment transport and sediment transport-vegetation interaction in rivers.
