Introduction



This project is part of the Hydrodynamic Instabilities course of O. Thual.

The purpose of this study is to understand the characteristics of Burgers equation in 1D. The non linearity and the shock formation are the main difficulty for correct solving. For the numerical computation the scheme should be accurate enough to be able to render the strong gradients over a limited set of points.
The work is dived is four parts:
