Toro No. 3

This tests introduced by Toro is actually the left half of Woodward and Colella's interacting blast wave problem. The time-dependent solution shows a left rarefaction, a strong shock moving to the right and a contact in-between.

(All physical quantities are given in dimensionless units.)
