This paper has analyzed the weights of the 5th order WENO (weighted essentially non-oscillatory) scheme suggested by Jiang and Shu and a modified smoothness estimator is suggested to improve the accuracy. Several numerical tests are presented to demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of the new scheme.
