One-Dimensional Tests.

Two-Dimensional Tests.

Three-Dimensional Tests.

Below is a list of tests which we have found useful in developing the algorithms in the Athena code. Follow the links for a detailed description of some of the tests, including results computed with Athena and/or ZEUS. The descriptions are meant to be detailed enough to allow anyone to try these tests in the privacy of their own home with any code -- if any information is missing that prevents this please let us know.
