When I apply the Discontinous Galerkin method on the KdV equation, the time step can only take very small number, like 0.0001. Can anyone tell me it is normal or not. Thanks !

yeah, DG has a timestep of 1/(2n+1), where n is the ansatz degree. Which order is your ansatz?

I am a new guy of DG. I use the second-order element and the third-order TVD Runge-Kutta method. I set dx = 0.1, how should I choose the time step?
