Abstract: A nonlinear first-order boundary value problem with discontinuous solutions is considered. It arises in the study of gasflow through a duct and allows, in general, for multiple solutions. New convergence results for three difference schemes are presented and the sharpness of numerical layers is established. For the EO-scheme, stability of a physically correct solution with respect to time evolution is shown.
