Abstract : In this paper, using entropy techniques, we study the rate of convergence of nonnegative solutions of a simple scalar conservation law to their asymptotic states in a weighted L1 norm. After an appropriate rescaling and for a well chosen weight, we obtain an exponential rate of convergence to a stationary solution. Written in the original coordinates,this provides intermediate asymptotics estimates in L1, with an algebraic rate. We also prove a uniform convergence result on the support of the solutions, provided the initial data is compactly supported and has an appropriate behaviour on a neighborhood of the lower end of its support.
