### Numerical methods for the continuity equation with Sobolev vector field

Consider the continuity equation $$\partial_t \rho(x,t) + \operatorname{div} (b(x,t) \rho(x,t)) = 0, \qquad t \in [0,T], \quad x \in \mathbb R^N,$$ with $b \in L^1((0,T), W^{1,p}(\mathbb R^N))$. ...

### Efects from the boundary in advection equation [duplicate]

I am implementing the advection equation $u_x+(1/c)u_t=0$ following a Crank-Nicholson finite difference scheme. The equation for this is \begin{eqnarray*} -\frac{\gamma}{4} w_{n-3 j+1} + w_{n-2 j+1} ...

### Neumann boundary conditions in the Maccormack scheme

I am trying to solve the viscous Burger equation $$\frac{\partial u}{\partial t} + u\frac{\partial u}{\partial x} = \mu \frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x^2}$$ with Neumann boundary conditions. I am ...
