Entropy viscosity method for high-order approximations of conservation laws J.L. Guermond and R. Pasquetti Abstract A stabilization technique for conservation laws is presented. It introduces in the governing equations a nonlinear dissipation function of the residual of the associated entropy equation and bounded from above by a first order viscous term. Different two-dimensional test cases are simulated - a 2D Burgers problem, the “KPP rotating wave” and the Euler system - using high order methods: spectral elements or Fourier expansions. Details on the tuning of the parameters controlling the entropy viscosity are given. 1 Introduction High-order methods, especially spectral methods, are very efficient for solving Par- tial Differential Equations (PDEs) with smooth solutions since the approximation error goes exponentially fast to zero as the polynomial degree of the approxima- tion goes to infinity, i.e. spectral accuracy is observed. Unfortunately this property breaks down for non-smooth solutions such as those that arise from solving nonlin- ear conservation laws. This type of equations generates shocks which in turn induce the so-called Gibbs phenomenon. The problem is not new and many sophisticated algorithms have been developed to address this issue. Particularly popular among these methods are the so-called monotone and Total Variation Diminishing (TVD) schemes that aim at enhancing the accuracy far from the shocks and promoting non- J.
