TL;DR: In this article, a class of new explicit second order accurate finite difference schemes for the computation of weak solutions of hyperbolic conservation laws is presented, which are obtained by applying a nonoscillatory first order accurate scheme to an appropriately modified flux function.
Abstract: A class of new explicit second order accurate finite difference schemes for the computation of weak solutions of hyperbolic conservation laws is presented. These highly nonlinear schemes are obtained by applying a nonoscillatory first order accurate scheme to an appropriately modified flux function. The so-derived second order accurate schemes achieve high resolution while preserving the robustness of the original nonoscillatory first order accurate scheme. Numerical experiments are presented to demonstrate the performance of these new schemes.

TL;DR: A uniformly second-order approximation of hyperbolic conservation laws is constructed, which is nonoscillatory in the sense that the number of extrema of the discrete solution is not increasing in time.
Abstract: We begin the construction and the analysis of nonoscillatory shock capturing methods for the approximation of hyperbolic conservation laws. These schemes share many desirable properties with total variation diminishing schemes, but TVD schemes have at most first-order accuracy, in the sense of truncation error, at extrema of the solution. In this paper we construct a uniformly second-order approximation, which is nonoscillatory in the sense that the number of extrema of the discrete solution is not increasing in time. This is achieved via a nonoscillatory piecewise-linear reconstruction of the solution from its cell averages, time evolution through an approximate solution of the resulting initial value problem and an average of this approximate solution over each cell.

TL;DR: In this article, the notion of subcell resolution is introduced, which is based on the observation that unlike point values, cell-averages of a discontinuous piecewise-smooth function contain information about the exact location of the discontinuity within the cell.

TL;DR: A new way of measuring the smoothness of a numerical solution is proposed, emulating the idea of minimizing the total variation of the approximation, which results in a fifth-order WENO scheme for the caser= 3, instead of the fourth-order with the original smoothness measurement by Liuet al.

TL;DR: Two methods of sharpening contact discontinuities-the subcell resolution idea of Harten and the artificial compression idea of Yang, which those authors originally used in the cell average framework-are applied to the current ENO schemes using numerical fluxes and TVD Runge-Kutta time discretizations.
