The use of the highest-order ((N - 1)th-order) Lagrangian interpolation Polynomial for the approximation of the exact solution in the backward characteristics scheme with N nodes is inefficient owing to the excessive number of terms in the polynomial. New schemes based on a combination of lower-order polynomials to approximate the exact solution are developed, with the relative weighting of the polynomials determined by Fourier mode analysis. With the addition of a flux limiter and a modified discriminator, the resulting schemes are oscillation-free, highly accurate, efficient and more cost-effective as compared with those schemes using the highest-order Lagrangian polynomial.
