Adaptive Mesh Refinement Using Wave-Propagation Algorithms for Hyperbolic Systems
by Marsha J. Berger and Randall J. LeVeque SIAM J. Numer. Anal., 35(1998), pp. 2298-2316.

Abstract. An adaptive mesh refinement algorithm developed for the Euler equations of gas dynamics has been extended to employ high-resolution wave-propagation algorithms in a more general framework. This allows its use on a variety of new problems, including hyperbolic equations not in conservation form, problems with source terms or capacity functions, and logically rectangular curvilinear grids. This framework requires a modified approach to maintaining consistency and conservation at grid interfaces, which is described in detail. The algorithm is implemented in the AMRCLAW package, which is freely available.
