Several explicit Taylor-Galerkin-based time integration schemes are proposed for the solution of both linear and non-linear convection problems with divergence-free velocity. These schemes are based on second-order Taylor series of the time derivative. The spatial discretization is performed by a high-order Galerkin spectral element method. For convection-diffusion problems an operator-splitting technique is given that decouples the treatment of the convective and diffusive terms. Both problems are then solved using a suitable time scheme. The Taylor-Galerkin methods and the operator-splitting scheme are tested numerically for both convection and convection-diffusion problems.
