Abstract : The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations describe the flow of fluids such as water, air at low speeds, and many other common liquids and gases. Efficient and accurate numerical methods for their solution are therefore of great importance for a wide variety of engineering and scientific applications. In this paper, several existing finite difference methods are examined and suggestions for further research are given. (Author)
