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
