The effect of an inaccurate geometry description on the solution accuracy of a hyperbolic problem is discussed. The inaccurate geometry can for example come from an imperfect CAD system, a faulty mesh generator, bad measurements or simply a misconception.
We show that inaccurate geometry descriptions might lead to the wrong wave speeds, a misplacement of the boundary conditions, to the wrong boundary operator and a mismatch of boundary data.
The errors caused by an inaccurate geometry description may affect the solution more than the accuracy of the specific discretization techniques used. In extreme cases, the order of accuracy goes to zero. Numerical experiments corroborate the theoretical results.
