I'm solving the wave equation ($u_{tt} + c^2 \Delta u = f$) with dirichlet boundary conditions and a given starting deflection $u_0$ and a starting velocity $v_0$ in one or two dimensions. I discretised the wave equation using linear finite elements and solving it with the implicit euler method. How can I prove the first order convergence in time of this method?
