Item description for Riemann Solvers and Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics: A Practical Introduction by Eleuterio F. Toro...
High resolution upwind and centered methods are today a mature generation of computational techniques applicable to a wide range of engineering and scientific disciplines, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) being the most prominent up to now. This textbook gives a comprehensive, coherent and practical presentation of this class of techniques. The book is designed to provide readers with an understanding of the basic concepts, some of the underlying theory, the ability to critically use the current research papers on the subject, and, above all, with the required information for the practical implementation of the methods. Applications include: compressible, steady, unsteady, reactive, viscous, non-viscous and free surface flows. For this third edition, the book was thoroughly revised. It contains substantial more and new material both in its fundamental as well as in its applied part.

Reviews - What do customers think about Riemann Solvers and Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics: A Practical Introduction?
Here's hoping for a third edition of this great text! Jun 30, 2001
This is the book you want if you need to solve real compressible flow problems. It covers all the basics plus there's tons of advanced materials. I especially like the fact that there are numerous detailed examples and coding templates. In addition, the book contains a very extensive reference, allowing the reader to go back to the orginal papers.

Have to agree with Mark, this book is quite superb. Professor Toro does a superb job - it took me from knowing nothing about shock capture to being able to write my own high resolution code in about six months. Coupled with the Numerica software it is an invaluable tool for learning about compressible flow.
Outstanding text or reference for graduate level CFD! Dec 1, 1998
By far the best computational fluid dynamics text I have come across during my thesis research! The author presents modern shock-capturing numerical methods for solving the time-dependent hyperbolic conservation laws in multiple dimensions with exceptional clarity. Most of the text focuses on Godunov methods and is littered with practical applications and discussions for those with a limited background in CFD. In addition, Toro presents a simpler interpretation of his WAF method. In terms of readability, I found this book to be far superior. It will undoubtedly become as indispensible in the CFD field as those by Fletcher, Hirsch and LeVeque!
