Introduction

This is a collection of notebooks on computational (astro)physics, used to introduce finite-volume methods for solving the Euler equations.

Starting at the beginning, these notebooks introduce numerical methods for derivatives, intergration, rooting finding, and ODEs, focusing on the parts that we will need to solve the equations of hydrodynamics.

The next set of notebooks begin with the linear advection equation and then onto the compressible Euler equations.
