Abstract: Consider the initial-value problem for a constant-coefficient symmetric hyperbolic system with initial-values vanishing in a half-space. Consider also a finite difference operator consistent with the system. Conditions are given in terms of the orders of dissipation and accuracy which ensure that the solution of the discrete problem tends to zero exponentially with the mesh-width in half-spaces where the solution of the continuous problem vanishes.
