Application of Relaxation Schemes and Method of Characteristics to Degenerate Convection-Diffusion Problems 1

ByJ. Kačur

A new approximation scheme is proposed to solve a nonlinear degenerate convection-diffusion problem. The method is based on a relaxation scheme developed for degenerate parabolic problems in [JK2 ], [K2 ] and on the method of characteristics [P], [DR.].
