Semi-Lagrangian contouring provides a single algorithm applicable to a wide variety of moving interface problems. The original semi-Lagrangian solver could attack a wide range of problems, but was limited by piecewise-linear contouring and by an explicit solver for time stepping. We modify the algorithm to address both issues--to improve the contouring to fourth-order accuracy, and to allow implicit time stepping for stiff problems.
