Error Estimates for Approximate Solutions for Nonlinear Scalar Conservation Laws

Tao Tang

Abstract: This paper is devoted to analyse the errors for approximate solutions for nonlinear conservation laws. We review the recent work on error estimates for nonlinear scalar conservation laws. In particular, we show in this note how to obtain optimal pointwise-error estimates for piecewise smooth solutions with shocks.
