## Problem definition

$\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}+ u \frac{\partial u}{\partial x}=0$

## Domain

$x \in \left[-5,10\right]$

## Initial Condition

$u(x,0) = \begin{cases} 0 & x \le 0 \\ 1 & x > 0 \end{cases}$

## Boundary condition

$u(0,t)=0$

## Exact solution

$u(x,t) = \begin{cases} 0 & x \le 0 \\ x/t & 0 < x < t \\ 1 & \mbox{otherwise} \end{cases}$
