### Abstract

We consider explicit schemes for homogeneous conservation laws which satisfy the geometric Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy condition in order to guarantee stability but allow a time step with CFL-number larger than one. A brief overview over existing unconditionally stable schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws is provided, although the focus is on LeVeque's large time step Godunov scheme. For this scheme we explore the question of entropy consistency for the approximation of one-dimensional scalar conservation laws with convex ux function and describe a possible way to extend the scheme to the two-dimensional case. Numerical calculations and analytical results show that an increase of accuracy can be obtained because the error introduced by the modi ed evolution step of the large time step Godunov scheme may be less important than the error due to the projection step.
