Abstract: We consider numerical approximations to solutions of systems of hyperbolic conservation laws of the form $ \partial u/\partial t + \partial f(u)/\partial x = 0$, $ u \in {{\mathbf{R}}^n}$ and $ f:{R^n} \to {R^n}$ smooth. We show that conservative three-point second-order accurate methods cannot satisfy a local entropy inequality.
