11 The system matrix L corresponding to this three-point scheme is tridiagonal, and the system can be easily solved by Gaussian elimination (A. W-H. K. S. Ryabenkii [GR87a]). 100) ∂x2 ∂y 2 We introduce a Cartesian grid with grid sizes hx , hy and the number of grid subdivisions Nx , Ny in the x- and y-directions, respectively. To keep the notation simple, we consider the grid to be uniform along each axis; more generally, hx could vary along the x-axis and hy could vary along the y-axis, but the essence of the analysis would remain the same.

Consistency error): if the solution varies smoothly and slowly in time, it can be approximated with sufficient accuracy even if the time step is large. 28 2 Finite-Difference Schemes Fig. 8. Stability region of the Crank–Nicolson scheme is the left half-plane. The second constraint is imposed by stability of the scheme. g. Fig. 1. 785/|λ|. 52) with λ < 0 and a decaying exponential solution, the accuracy and stability restrictions on the time step size are commensurate. Indeed, accuracy calls for the step size on the order of the relaxation time 1/λ or less, which is well within the stability limit even for the simplest forward Euler scheme.
