Error estimates of the Godunov method for the multidimensional compressible Euler system

by   Maria Lukacova-Medvidova, et al.

We derive a priori error of the Godunov method for the multidimensional Euler system of gas dynamics. To this end we apply the relative energy principle and estimate the distance between the numerical solution and the strong solution. This yields also the estimates of the L^2-norm of errors in density, momentum and entropy. Under the assumption that the numerical density and energy are bounded, we obtain a convergence rate of 1/2 for the relative energy in the L^1-norm. Further, under the assumption – the total variation of numerical solution is bounded, we obtain the first order convergence rate for the relative energy in the L^1-norm. Consequently, numerical solutions (density, momentum and entropy) converge in the L^2-norm with the convergence rate of 1/2. The numerical results presented for Riemann problems are consistent with our theoretical analysis.
