Chapter 1
Continuity equation and applications

Mathematical descriptions of scenarios should conserve particular quantities. We use the continuity equation as the underlying equation, which conserves these quantities for our considered simulations and start with a short derivation of this equation. This is followed by presenting two typical applications which are used in this work and introduce a notation for the conserved quantities. These conserved quantities are then successively discretized in the upcoming chapters.
