 solving linear and nonlinear first-order hyperbolic partial differential
 equations (PDEs).  The method was originally developed for solving aerodynamic
 problems [Chang95]_.
+
+Reliability
+===========
+
+A classic example to verify whether an CFD algorithm is well-developed and
+robust is the Sod shock tube problem.
+The Sod shock tube problem is named after Gary A. Sod who proposed and
+investigate the problem heavily in 1978 [Sod78]_.
+In the following we are going to introduce the Sod tube problem in detail.
+
+Analytic solution
++++++++++++++++++
+
+In short,
+
+.. math::
+
+  \text{Sod shocktube problem} = \text{shock tube problem} + \text{Sod's initial condition}
+
+A shock tube problem is a well-defined problem and has an analytic solution.
+This is a good benchmark to compare different CFD algorithm results.
+
+Form the point of physics and mathematics view, we will say
+
+.. math::
+
+  \text{shock tube problem} = \text{Riemann problem} + \text{Eular equations in gas dynamic}
+
+where Riemann problem takes over the mathematics part and
+Eular equations domain the physics part.
+
+Riemann problem
+---------------
+
+The nonlinear hyperbolic system of PDEs :eq:riemannproblem.pde
+and the piecewise-defined function :eq:riemannproblem.piecewise
+define the Riemann problem.
+
+.. math::
+  :label: riemannproblem.pde
+
+  \dpd{\bvec{U}}{t}
+  + \dpd{\bvec{F(\bvec{U})}}{x}
+  = 0
+
+
+.. math::
+  :label: riemannproblem.piecewise
+
+  \bvec{U} \defeq \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    \rho_L \\ u_L \\ p_L
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \text{ for }
+  x <= 0
+  \text{ and }
+  \bvec{U} \defeq \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    \rho_R \\ u_R \\ p_R
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \text{ for }
+  x > 0
+
+Eular equations in gas dynamic
+------------------------------
+
+Eular equations are one of the hyperbolic systems of PDEs
+:eq:riemannproblem.pde. They represent mass conservation
+:eq:eular.gasdyn.mass, momentum conservation :eq:eular.gasdyn.momentum,
+and energy conservation :eq:eular.gasdyn.energy.
+
+.. math::
+  :label: eular.gasdyn.mass
+
+  \dpd{\rho}{t} + \dpd{{\rho}{v}}{x} = 0
+
+.. math::
+  :label: eular.gasdyn.momentum
+
+  \dpd{\rho{v}}{t} + \dpd{(p+\rho{v^2})}{x} = 0
+
+.. math::
+  :label: eular.gasdyn.energy
+
+  \dpd{(\frac{p}{\gamma-1} + \frac{\rho{v^2}}{2})}{t}
+  + \dpd{(\frac{\gamma}{\gamma-1}pv+\frac{1}{2}\rho{v^3})}{x}
+  = 0
+
+If
+
+.. math::
+  :label: eular.gasdyn.u
+
+  \bvec{U}
+  =
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    u_1 \\ u_2 \\ u_3
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \defeq
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    \rho_1 \\ \rho_2 \\ \rho_3
+  \end{array}\right)
+
+.. math::
+  :label: eular.gasdyn.f
+
+  \bvec{F}
+  =
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    f_1 \\ f_2 \\ f_3
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \defeq
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    {\rho}{v} \\ {(p+\rho{v^2})} \\ {(\frac{\gamma}{\gamma-1}pv+\frac{1}{2}\rho{v^3})}
+  \end{array}\right)
+
+Equation :eq:eular.gasdyn.mass, :eq:eular.gasdyn.momentum and
+:eq:eular.gasdyn.energy could be written as riemannproblem.pde.
+
+1D Sod's shock tube problem
+---------------------------
+
+In :eq:riemannproblem.piecewise, if we introduce Sod's conditions in
+the one-dimension(1D) shock tube problem.
+
+.. math::
+  :label: sod.conditions
+
+  \bvec{U}
+  \defeq
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    1 \\ 0 \\ 1
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \defeq
+  \bvec{U_L}
+  \text{ for }
+  x <= 0
+  \text{ and }
+  \bvec{U}
+  \defeq
+  \left(\begin{array}{c}
+    0.125 \\ 0 \\ 0.1
+  \end{array}\right)
+  \defeq
+  \bvec{U_R}
+  \text{ for }
+  x > 0
+  \text{at } t=0
+
+and :math:\bvec{U} and :math:\bvec{F} obey Eular equations,
+this is called Sod's shock tube problem. The physical image could be
+there is a diaphragm, which ideal gas with the status :math:\bvec{U_L}
+in the left-hand side of the diaphragm, ideal gas with the status
+:math:\bvec{U_R} in the right-hand side. How does the status evolve
+after the diaphragm disappears all of a sudden, say at :math:t>0
+
+We describe the Sod shock tube at :math:t>0 in "5 zones".
+From the left (:math:x<0) to the right (:math:x>0) of the diaphragm.
+
+* Region 1
+
+  * There is no boundary of the tube,so the status is always :math:\bvec{U_L}
+
+* Region 2
+
+  * The status is linear combination of the sound in the region 2 and
+    the rarefaction wave. And the status is continuous from the region 1
+    to the region 3. For example, the velocity in the region 3, :math:u_3,
+    continues to decrease to be the velocity in the region 1,
+    :math:u_1=0.
+
+* Region 3
+
+  * In the shock "pocket", there is "no more shock" and the hyperbolic
+    PDE :eq:riemannproblem.pde told us :math:u_3=u_4=\text{Reimann-invariants}.
+    Together with Rankine-Hugoniot conditions, we know :math:p_3=p_4 and
+    the density is discontinuous.
+
+* Region 4
+
+  * Because of the expansion of the shock, there is shock discontinuity.
+    The discontinuity status could be determined by Rankine-Hugoniot conditions
+    [Wesselling01]_.
+
+* Region 5
+
+  * There is no boundary of the tube,so the status is always :math:\bvec{U_R}
+
+To derive the analytic solution, we will begin from the region 4 to get
+:math:\bvec{u_4}, then :math:\bvec{u_3} and finally \bvec{u_2}.
