discontinuous Galerkin method

(DG method)
(computational method for PDEs handling discontinuities)

A discontinuous Galerkin method (DG method) is a type of finite element method that is an adaption of a type called a Galerkin method or continuous Galerkin method. DG methods have the advantage of handling discontinuities, and are useful in calculations of fields that include shocks (shock waves).

A DG code is a code making use of the method.
