This is a review of the main results in computational mathematics that were obtained by the eminent Russian mathematician Alexander Andreevich Samarskii (February 19, 1919 - February 11, 2008). His outstanding research output addresses all the main questions that arise in the construction and justification of algorithms for the numerical solution of problems from mathematical physics. The remarkable works of A.A. Samarskii include statements of the main principles required in the construction of difference schemes, rigorous mathematical proofs of the stability and convergence of these schemes, and also investigations of their algorithmic implementation. A.A. Samarskii and his collaborators constructed and applied in practical calculations a large number of algorithms for solving various problems from mathematical physics, including thermal physics, gas dynamics, magnetic gas dynamics, plasma physics, ecology and other important models from the natural sciences.

    For a certain choice of pressure the equations of gas dynamics can be diagonalized, making it easy to calculate some first-order conserved densities of the system. Using the Hamiltonian structure of these equations, third-order symmetries are seen to exist by the Noether correspondence. Such...

    An analytical version of the discrete-ordinates method is used here in the field of rarefied-gas dynamics to solve a version of the temperature-jump problem that is based on a linearized, variable collision frequency model of the Boltzmann equation. In addition to a complete development of the...

    A (d+1)-dimensional dispersionless PDE is said to be integrable if its n-component hydrodynamic reductions are locally parametrized by (d-1)n arbitrary functions of one variable. The most important examples include the four-dimensional heavenly equation descriptive of self-dual Ricci-flat...
