The paper deals with the numerical solution of a scalar nonstationary nonlinear convection-diffusion equation. We employ a combination of the discontinuous Galerkin finite element method for the space as well as time discretization. We analyze this scheme and derive a priori asymptotic error estimates. Finally, we present an efficient solution strategy and numerical examples verifying the theoretical results
