Rate of Convergence for the Zero Relaxation Limit
Wen Shen, Aslak Tveito, and Ragnar Winther
Some recent results on the rate of convergence towards
equilibrium for some $2\times2$ systems of conservation laws which
include stiff relaxation terms are presented.
We focus our attention on certain specific model problems.
We will discuss the possibility of deriving properties like
bounds on the total variation, stability with respect the initial data
and error estimates for finite difference schemes which are independent
of the relaxation parameters, and explain how such bounds can be used to
obtain estimates on the rate of convergence for the zero relaxation limit.
