An explicit algorithm that yields finite difference schemes of aly desired order of accuracy for solving quasi-linear hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations in several space dimensions is presented. These schemes are shown to be stable under certain conditions. The stability conditions in the one-dimensional case are derived for any order of accuracy. Analytic stability proofs for two and $d\;(d > 2)$ space dimensions are also obtained up to and including third order accuracy. A conjecture is submitted for the highest accuracy schemes in the multi-dimensional cases. Numerical examples show that the above schemes have the stipulated accuracy and stability.
