Hi everybody,
I have been reading very carefully the book by E. Toro on shock capturing methods for shallow water flows and cannot understand why it uses the criteria h*>hL (or h*>hR) to define the situation when a shock will occur. Shouldn't it be labmda*>lambdaL [where lambda is the eigenvalue of the Jacobian matrix, e.g. u+sqrt(gh)]. Does anyone has read that book and found the same issue?
