Abstract: A systematic procedure for constructing explicit, quasi second-order approximations to strictly hyperbolic systems of conservation laws is presented. These new schemes are obtained by correcting first-order schemes. We prove that limit solutions satisfy the entropy inequality. In the scalar case, we prove convergence to the unique entropy-satisfying solution if the initial scheme is Total Variation Decreasing (i.e., TVD) and consistent with the entropy condition. Finally, we slightly modify Harten's high-order schemes such that they obey the previous conditions and thus converge towards the "entropy" solution.
