Abstract

Hyperbolic history value problems have the feature that globally (in time) smooth solutions exist if the data are sufficiently small and that solutions develop singularities for large data. The authors prove (second order) convergence of the Lax-Wendroff method for smooth solutions and investigate numerically the dependence of the initial data. They demonstrate the occurrence of shock type singularities and compare the results to the quasilinear wave equation (without Volterra term).
