One Dimensional Burgers' Equation

In this example we use a one-dimensional third order semi-discrete central scheme to evolve the solution of the inviscid Burgers' equation

over the interval , from to , with initial conditions given by

and periodic boundary conditions,. Solution computed using 400 cells and cfl number 0.75.
