Inspired by so-called TVD limiter-based second-order schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws, we develop a second-order accurate numerical method for multi-dimensional aggregation equations. The method allows for simulations to be continued after the first blow-up time of the solution. In the case of symmetric, lambda-convex potentials with a possible Lipschitz singularity at the origin we prove that the method converges in the Monge--Kantorovich distance towards the unique gradient flow solution. This is joint work with José A. Carrillo and Susanne Solem.
