Abstract: We derive a lower error bound for monotone difference schemes to the solution of the linear advection equation with BV initial data. A rigorous analysis shows that for any monotone difference scheme the lower $ {L^1}$-error bound is $ O(\sqrt {\Delta x} )$, where $ \Delta x$ is the spatial stepsize.
