This program solves the Prandtl-Meyer expansion wave problem by using the MacCormack's predictor-corrector technique, as described in the book "Computational fluid dynamics: the basics with applications" from J.D.Anderson. As a result, this code might be useful for those trying to solve the problem, but also for anyone who is interested in supersonic aerodynamics.

Great improvement of MacCornack's technique, very useful and comprehensible. Great job! (Specially the Bisekja part)
