6 Physical Interpretation The value of r can be thought of as the ratio of two gradients: Limiter chooses gradient adaptively to avoid creating extrema EP e PW r  Downwind cell gradient Upwind cell gradient ww

7 Case (a): Linear Variation Since: If variation is a straight line, on a uniform mesh, r=1 From our limiter function range, =1 for r=1 Can use either gradient and get the right value at e EP PW r  r=1
