We consider the efficient approximation of low Mach number flows by a high-order scheme, coupling a discontinuous Galerkin (DG) discretization in space with an implicit/explicit (IMEX) discretization in time. The splitting into linear implicit and nonlinear explicit parts relies heavily on the incompressible solution. The method has been originally developed for a singularly perturbed ODE and applied to the isentropic Euler equations. Here, we improve, extend, and investigate the so-called RS-IMEX splitting method. The resulting scheme can cope with a broader range of Mach numbers without running into roundoff errors, it is extended to realistic physical boundary conditions, and it is shown to be highly efficient in comparison to more standard solution techniques.
