In this work, we design new interface transmission conditions for a domain decomposition Schwarz algorithm for the Euler equations in two dimensions. These new interface conditions are designed to improve the convergence properties of the Schwarz algorithm. These conditions depend on a few parameters and they generalize the classical ones. Numerical results illustrate the effectiveness of the new interface conditions.
