SharpClaw is a library of Fortran routines designed to solve hyperbolic systems of PDEs with arbitrarily high order accuracy. The numerical method used to solve these equations is described in David Ketcheson’s Ph.D. thesis. To solve a particular hyperbolic system, SharpClaw requires only that the user provide a Riemann solver. The Riemann solver should be written in the same format as that used in Randy LeVeque’s Clawpack sofware (available at Like Clawpack, SharpClaw is based on a wave propagation approach: the Riemann solver does not need to provide fluxes, but only the waves and their speeds.
