Is CFL number the same as Courant number?
 
Hi,

Are CFL number and Courant number the same thing?

Best,

We have the Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy condition, in which the dimensionless Courant number appears. If you say CFL number I don't think anyone would misunderstand, so more or less Yes to your question.
