We present the results of high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations of stable and overstable radiative shocks. A one-dimensional resolution study, incorporating both power-law and realistic astrophysical cooling functions, agrees well with analytical solutions both in the spatial structure of the shocked zone and in the frequencies of overstable oscillations. This builds upon previous work by Strickland & Blondin, evaluating the accuracy of our code and estimating the resolution required to...[Show more]
