Abstract : Several numerical methods used in the caluclation of hydrodynamic shocks were investigated. Particular attention was given to the artificial viscosity approach of Von Neumann and Richtmyer and its application to the 'PUFF' numerical scheme. The particle model approach of Ludford, Polachek and Seeger, and the method of Lax were also considered. (Author)
