Lecture notes in compressed Postscript

A nice introduction to numerical methods for relativistic hydrodynamics can be found in the introductory
sections of these thesis

Computational Ultrarelativistic Hydrodynamics
by Ian Hawke (compressed Postscript). It includes the spectral decomposition for the Roe solver in special relativity.

Extremely Relativistic Fluids in Strong-Field Gravity
by David W Neilsen (compressed Postscript)

A Numerical Study of Relativistic Fluid Collapse
by Scott C Noble (compressed Postscript)

Each provides a bit different perspective on the topics covered in the lecture notes and
contains much more details and additional information.

The relativity.livingreviews.org
is a good source of information on topics in relativity.
These articles are particularly relevant to numerical relativistic hydrodynamics:

Numerical Hydrodynamics in Special Relativity
It includes the spectral decomposition for the Roe solver in general relativity.

Numerical Hydrodynamics in General Relativity

An efficient method for finding the exact solutions of the relativistic Riemann problem
is described in:

An Improved Exact Riemann Solver for Relativistic Hydrodynamics

An Improved Exact Riemann Solver for Multidimensional Relativistic Flows
