Abstract: In this paper we establish error bounds for a finite-difference approximation to solutions of certain parabolic systems of the form $ {v_t} + f{(v)_x} = \varepsilon {v_{xx}}$. We assume that the Cauchy data is of class BV, and we show that the sup norm of the error is bounded by $ O(\Delta x\vert\ln \Delta x\vert)$ at positive times.
