Implementation of MUSCL-Hancock method into the C++ code for the Euler equations

In this paper we present implementation of the MUSCL-Hancock method for numerical solutions of the Euler equations. As a result of the internal complexity of these equations solving them numerically is a formidable task. With the use of the original C++ code, we developed and presented results of a numerical test that was performed. This test shows that our code copes very well with this task.
