Abstract: We prove a convergence result for a shock-capturing streamline diffusion finite element method applied to a time-dependent scalar nonlinear hyperbolic conservation law in two space dimensions. The proof is based on a uniqueness result for measure-valued solutions by DiPerna. We also prove an almost optimal error estimate for a linearized conservation law having a smooth exact solution.
