Abstract: We provide a new analytical approach to operator splitting for equations of the type , where is a linear operator and is quadratic. A particular example is the Kortewegde Vries (KdV) equation . We show that the Godunov and Strang splitting methods converge with the expected rates if the initial data are sufficiently regular.
