### Godunov scheme

**(Godunov's scheme)**
(computational fluid dynamics method)

The **Godunov scheme** (or **Godunov's scheme**)
is a method for calculating solutions to fluid dynamics partial differential equations.
It is similar to (or a variant of) the finite volume method.
It has the advantage of being able to incorporate certain
efficient approximate algorithms to deal with the
boundaries between volumes.
