The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the stability and error estimates of the local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) methods coupled with implicit-explicit (IMEX) time discretization schemes, for solving one-dimensional convection-diffusion equations with a nonlinear convection. Both Runge-Kutta and multi-step IMEX methods are considered. By the aid of the energy method, we show that the IMEX LDG schemes are unconditionally stable for the nonlinear problems, in the sense that the time-step $\dt$ is only required to be upper-bounded by a positive constant which depends on the flow velocity and the diffusion coefficient, but is independent of the mesh size $h$. We also give optimal error estimates for the IMEX LDG schemes, under the same temporal condition, if a monotone numerical flux is adopted for the convection. Numerical experiments are given to verify our main results.
