In this paper we study the convergence of the semi-implicit and the implicit Euler methods for the time integration of abstract, quasilinear hyperbolic evolution equations. The analytical framework considered here includes certain quasilinear Maxwell’s and wave equations as special cases. Our analysis shows that the Euler approximations are well-posed and convergent of order one. The techniques will be the basis for the future investigation of higher order time integration methods and full discretizations of certain quasilinear hyperbolic problems.
