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.
