A powerfull method has been developped in [2] for the study of L 1 -stability of travelling waves in conservation laws or more generally in equations which display L 1 -contractivity, maximum principle and mass conservation. We recall shortly the general procedure. We also show that it partly applies to the waves of a model of radiating gas. These waves have first been studied by Kawashima and Nishibata [5,6] in a different framework. Therefore, shock fronts for this model are stable under mild perturbations.
