Jacobian of 1D Euler Equation of Gas Dynamics
I'm new in the field of CFD and now writing an optimization code that incorporates 1D system of Euler equations of Gas Dynamics.
Some lines in my code need Jacobian of the Euler equation. I wonder how to incorporate Jacobian, because to my knowledge, for 1D Euler equation, Jacobian is a 3X3 matrix while my code uses one dimensional vectors/arrays? See for example discrete equation below where f'(u_j) is the Jacobian. p_i = p_j + (dt/dx)*q_j*f'(u_j) + 0.5*(dt/dx)*(q_j+1  q_j1) + 0.5*(dt/dx)*a*(p_j+1 2p_j + p_j1). Any suggestion/idea is welcome and appreciated! 
1 D Euler equations are of the form U_t + (F(U))_x=0, where A=dF/dU is the Jacobian, Now if you write this equation in Quasilinear form, then it becomes U_t + (A) U_x =0. U is a column vector of 3 elements namely rho, rho*u and e, so solve it using any scheme, U is 3X1 and A is 3x3 matrix. So ultimately there will be three coupled equations which you need to solve simultaneously by continuous updation of rho, rho*u and e, and also dt, using any timeintegration method.
For a good reference, look into the paper : Sod, G. A. (1978). "A Survey of Several Finite Difference Methods for Systems of Nonlinear Hyperbolic Conservation Laws". J. Comput. Phys. 27: 1–31. 
Jacobian of 1D Euler Equation of Gas Dynamics
Thank you bidyut, that is helpful enough. But I wonder if it is Jacobian that is used in the scheme or it just stands for some physical meaning.

It is simply rate of change of "numerical flux" with respect to "quasi" primitive variable rho, pho*u and e...
