Abstract: Convergence to the entropy solution of a second-order scheme for the resolution of scalar hyperbolic conservation laws is studied. We consider the case of the so-called two-point upstream weighting scheme, widely used in petroleum engineering, to solve fluid flows in porous media problems. We prove convergence of the two-point upstream weighting scheme to the entropy solution for both discrete and semidiscrete approximations.
