On convergence of monotone finite difference schemes with variable spatial differencing. (English) Zbl 0533.65061
Explicit and implicit difference schemes and the method of lines used for solution of the Cauchy problem \[ u_ t+\sum^{2}_{i=1}f_ i(u)_{x_ i}=0,\quad u(x,0)=u_ 0(x) \] on a nonuniform spatial mesh are considered. In all methods the operator \(D_ x\) approximating the space derivatives is monotone and consistent. Theorems on the convergence of solutions of difference schemes and the method of lines to the unique solution of the original equation satisfying the entropy condition for \(\delta\to 0\) are proved. Here \(\delta\) is a parameter characterizing the maximum mesh size \(\Omega_{j,k}=[x_ j,x_{j+1}]\times [y_ k,y_{k+1}],\) where \(x=x_ 1\), \(y=x_ 2\).
