Time-dependent boundary conditions for hyperbolic systems. II. (English) Zbl 0701.76070
Summary: Part I [the author, ibid. 68, 1-24 (1987; Zbl 0619.76089)] introduced the concept of nonreflecting boundary conditions for hyperbolic equations in more than one dimension. This paper develops a general boundary condition formalism for all types of boundary conditions to which hyperbolic systems are subject (including the nonreflecting conditions). The formalism is described in detail, and many examples are provided for common problems in hydrodynamics, including solid wall and nonreflecting boundaries.
