Abstract: WENO schemes are a popular class of shock-capturing schemes which adopt an adaptive-stencil approach to interpolation. WENO schemes rely on smoothness indicators to assess the relative smoothness of the solution within the sub-stencils. Computing these smoothness indicators is the most expensive operation in the WENO reconstruction procedure. In this paper, an efficient algorithm is proposed to compute these quantities without sacrificing the positivity property of the smoothness indicators. The proposed algorithm involves linear combinations of the undivided differences which can be computed efficiently in a recursive manner. This allows the computation of the smoothness indicators to be performed using significantly fewer floating-point operations compared to conventional implementations. Moreover, the proposed algorithm is simple to implement and involves fewer constants.
