Error Bounded Schemes for Time-Dependent Hyperbolic Problems

Jan Nordström

May 2006

In this paper we address the error growth in time for hyperbolic problems on first order form. The energy method is used to study when an error growth or a fixed error bound is obtained. It is shown that the choice of boundary procedure is a crucial point. Numerical experiments corroborate the theoretical findings.
