Analysis of finite difference schemes for PDEs

Date: Tuesday, February 5, 2008

We demonstrate how tools from PDEs can be used to analyze stability of finite difference schemes. Examples include integration by parts, maximum principle, energy method, Green's function, Fourier analysis, Poincare-Friedrichs inequality and semigroups. This is an expository talk for a general audience.
