In this paper, we present the stability analysis and error estimates for the alternating evolution discontinuous Galerkin (AEDG) method with third order explicit Runge-Kutta temporal discretization for linear convection-diffusion equations. The scheme is shown stable under a CFL-like stability condition c0τ ≤ ε ≤ c1h2. Here ε is the method parameter, and h is the maximum spatial grid size. We further obtain the optimal L2 error of order O(τ3 + hk+1). Key tools include two approximation finite element spaces to distinguish overlapping polynomials, coupled global projections, and energy estimates of errors. For completeness, the stability analysis and error estimates for second order explicit Runge-Kutta temporal discretization is included in the appendix.
