In this paper, a framework for error analysis of numerical schemes in multidimensional wavenumber space under spatial and temporal (full) discretization is introduced. The numerical anisotropy of the two-dimensional advection and compressible Linearised Euler Equations (LEE) was analysed using this framework under different spatial discretisation methods; Fourier spectral (FS), finite difference and hybrid FS/finite difference. For the compressible two-dimensional LEE, it was found that the dispersive error from the use of a finite difference method in one spatial direction can propagate into the spatial direction for which a ..
