Abstract: The nonlinear stability in the $ {L^p}$-norm, $ p \geq 1$, of stationary weak discrete shocks for the Lax-Friedrichs scheme approximating general $ m \times m$ systems of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws is proved, provided that the summations of the initial perturbations equal zero. The result is proved by using both a weighted estimate and characteristic energy method based on the internal structures of the discrete shocks and the essential monotonicity of the Lax-Friedrichs scheme.
