Nonlinear Flux Approximation Scheme for Burgers Equation Derived from a Local BVP
We present a novel flux approximation scheme for the viscous Burgers equation. The numerical flux is computed from a local two-point boundary value problem for the stationary equation and requires the iterative solution of a nonlinear equation depending on the local boundary values and the viscosity. In the inviscid limit the scheme reduces to the Godunov numerical flux.
