The passage to the limit from a simple hyperbolic difference equation to a partial differential equation is investigated. It is shown that the solution of the difference equation tends to that of the differential equation (even if a certain criterion of Courant, Friedrichs and Lewy is not satisfied), when the initial values satisfy certain conditions of analyticity. In numerical computations, however, the round-off errors usually destroy the delicate features which make the formal convergence possible.
