**Abstract.**
Wave propagation algorithms are a class of high-resolution finite volume
methods for solving hyperbolic partial differential equations arising in
diverse applications. The development and use of
the CLAWPACK software implementing these methods serves as a case
study for a more general discussion of mathematical aspects of
software development and the need for more reproducibility in computational
research. Sample applications discussed include medical applications of
shock waves and geophysical fluid dynamics modeling volcanoes and tsunamis.
