6 LAGRANGIAN METHOD

Rather than solving the convective derivative $ df/dt$ with advection directly in Eulerian coordinates as for example in the Lax-Wendroff method (sect.2.3), the idea behind Lagrangian schemes is to split the equation and solve for the convective derivative separately by propagating the initial conditions along the characteristics.
