In this paper we begin with Taylor-Galerkin Finite Elements, then improve it completely and finally construct Modified Taylor-Galerkin Finite Elements. Computation is done by two methods to study two kinds of subsonic and supersonic flow field. The results show that the new one is much better than the old one.

Key words
