dc.description.abstractThe central scheme of Nessyahu and Tadmor (J. Comput. Phys, 87(1990)) has the bene t of not having to deal with the solution within the Riemann fan for solving hyperbolic conservation laws and related equations. But the staggered averaging causes large dissipation when the time step size is small comparing to the mesh size. The recent work of Kurganov and Tadmor (J. Comput. Phys, 160(2000)) overcomes the problem by use of a variable control volume and obtains a semi-discrete non-staggered central scheme. Motivated by this work, we introduce overlapping cell averages of the solution at the same discrete time level, and develop a simple alternative technique to control the O(1/∆t) dependence of the dissipation. Semi-discrete form of the central scheme can also be obtained. This technique is essentially independent of the reconstruction and the shape of the mesh, thus could also be useful for Voronoi mesh. The overlapping cell representation of the solution also opens new possibilities for reconstructions. Generally more compact reconstruction can be achieved. We demonstrate through numerical examples that combining two classes of the overlapping cells in the reconstruction can achieve higher resolution. Overlapping cells create self similarity in the grid and enable the development of central type discontinuous Galerkin methods for convection di ffusion equations and elliptic equations with convection, following the series works of Cockburn and Shu (Math. Comp. 52(1989)).en
