4 Other Developments 

In this Section we summarize some recent developments in numerical RHD based on non-HRSC methods. The corresponding methods have been shown to be capable of simulating high Lorentz factor flows with shock waves. Van Putten's approach, described in  4.1, was originally developed for numerical RMHD. 4.2 is devoted to outline recent relativistic extensions of SPH methods (originally developed for Newtonian hydrodynamics). Finally, 4.3 describes the main properties of the relativistic version of the beam scheme, a method based on the numerical solution of the equilibrium limit of the non-relativistic Boltzmann equation.
