An equation of the form:
[tex]
\frac{\partial A}{\partial t}+\frac{\partial B}{\partial x}=C
[/tex]
I am thinking Lax-Wendroff.

I would think so, seeing as how it fits the Wikipedia example fairly well.

I have been thinking about this, would I have to define:
[tex]
C=\frac{\partial}{\partial x}\int Cdx
[/tex]
and then define
[tex]
B'=B-\int Cdx
[/tex]
to get
[tex]
\frac{\partial A}{\partial t}+\frac{\partial B'}{\partial x}=0
[/tex]
and then apply Lax-Wendroff to the above equation?
