# Gauss LimitedLinear Scheme (2. Order)

Using the Gauss LimitedLinear scheme introduces a limiter function to avoid nonphysical values, compare J.H. Ferziger and M. Perić. In the diagrams one can see that the values of the scalar Φ are in the range of the defined interval [0:1]. Due to some numerical errors it is possible to get values lower or higher than the defined one. The order of magnitude of the error is 10-e13 (in this example). Hence, one should always use limited schemes instead of using the Gauss Linear scheme directly. Especially if the mesh is not orthogonal.
