There is a difference between the requirements for a hyperbolic pde like $$ u_t + a u_x = 0 $$ and for a purely parabolic pde like $$ u_t = u_{xx} $$ Suppose the solutions are smooth and you approximate them by some finite difference method. Then in case of hyperbolic problem, the maximum error in the numerical solution depends on the time interval of ...
