Abstract: A proof given by C. E. Pearson for the asymptotic convergence of the numerical solution of the diffusion equation is discussed, and found insufficient. A new, direct proof is given. A method given by Pearson, for improving the numerical solution when a discontinuity is present in the initial-boundary conditions, is considered in more detail.
