**Abstract: **The
theoretical issue of numerical stability and convergence analysis for a
wide class of nonlinear PDEs is discussed in this talk. For most
standard numerical schemes to certain nonlinear PDEs, such as the
semi-implicit schemes for the viscous Burgers’ equation, a direct maximum
norm analysis for the numerical solution is not available. In turn, a
linearized stability analysis, based on an a-priori assumption for the
numerical solution, has to be performed to make the local in time
stability and convergence analysis go through. The linearized
stability analysis usually requires a mild constraint between the
time step and spatial grid sizes, therefore such a numerical stability is
conditional. Instead, if a nonlinear numerical analysis could be directly
derived, such as the convex splitting schemes for a class of gradient
flows, a bound for the numerical solution becomes available, as a result
of the energy stability. Therefore, the stability and convergence for
these numerical schemes turn out to be unconditional.
