In general, solutions of nonlinear hyperbolic PDEs contain shocks or develop discontinuities. One option for improving the numerical treatment of the spurious oscillations that occur near these artifacts is through the application of a limiter. The cells where such treatment is necessary are referred to as troubled cells. In this article, we discuss the multiwavelet troubled-cell indicator that was introduced by Vuik and Ryan (J Comput Phys 270:138–160, 2014). We focus on the relation between the highest-level multiwavelet coefficients and jumps in (derivatives of) the DG approximation. Based on this information, we slightly modify the originalmultiwavelet troubled-cell indicator. Furthermore, we show onedimensional test cases using the modified multiwavelet troubled-cell indicator.
