We study a Lagrangian numerical scheme for solution of a nonlinear drift diffusion equation on an interval. The discretization is based on the equation's gradient flow structure with respect to the Wasserstein distance. The scheme inherits various properties of the continuous flow, like entropy monotonicity, mass preservation, metric contraction and minimum/maximum principles. As the main result, we give a proof of convergence in the limit of vanishing mesh size under a CFL-type condition. Wedoi:10.1051/m2an/2013126 fatcat:wwvpf2c2cngtrg626qhmn6k2he
