A system of conservation laws with a relaxation term

Hans Joachim Schroll, Aslak Tveito, and Ragnar Winther

Abstract: We consider a $2\times2$ system of conservation laws including a stiff relaxation term. Well-posedness of the system, the rate of convergence to equilibrium, and the rate of convergence for a finite difference scheme is discussed. Also a numerical example is presented.
