  • Abstract

The main novelty of this note is the approach which is used to show that Forward Time and Centred in Space (FTCS) scheme is data dependent stable for scalar hyperbolic conservation laws. Note that FTCS is well known to be unconditionally unstable in von-Neumann sense. In this new approach, the ratio of consecutive gradients is used to classify the initial data region where FTCS is non-oscillatory and stable. Numerical results for 1D scalar and system test problems are given to verify the claim.

  • Keywords

Numerical oscillations, von-Neumann stability, smoothness parameter, finite difference schemes, hyperbolic conservation laws.
