Abstract: Given a family of discrete shocks of a monotone scheme, we prove that the discrete shock profile with rational shock speed is asymptotically stable with respect to the topology : if , then as under no restriction conditions of the initial data to the interval . The asymptotic wave profile is uniquely identified from the above family by a mass parameter.
