We study some superconvergence properties of discontinuous Galerkin methods for convection-diffusion problems in one space dimension. We show that the nodal error converges with order 2p + 1 if polynomials of degree p are used. The theoretical results are verified by numerical experiments.

Keywords:  Superconvergence; Discontinuous Galerkin methods; Postprocessing
