We argue, in this paper, that the type of simulations to be carried out in the next decade will entail the use of high order schemes.

A discussion of some issues in the application of those schemes to time dependent problems are discussed. In particular we will review spectral shock capturing techniques and the asymptotic behavior of high order compact schemes.
