Abstract: We consider the approximate solution of the initial value problem

*v*is taken to have a jump discontinuity at zero, that discontinuity will propagate along , in the true solution

*u*. Estimates in and of the pollution effects of the discontinuity are found. These estimates show those effects to decay exponentially in in regions a fixed distance

*d*from the discontinuity and exponentially in

*d*for fixed

*h*.
