In the present paper, for the initial boundary value problem for the non‐homogeneous nonlinear transport equationthe basic principles for constructing difference schemes of any order of accuracy O(#GTM), M ≥ 1, on characteristic grids with the minimal stencil were introduced. To construct a difference scheme the Steklov averaging idea for the right‐hand sidewas used. The case of f(u) = λu2 was investigated in detail. A strict analysis of the order of approximation, stability, and convergence in nonlinear case was made. The performed numerical experiments justify theoretical results.
