A Survey of the Implementation of Numerical Schemes for the Heat Equation Using Forward Euler in Time
ABSTRACT
We establish the conditions for the compute of the Global Truncation Error (GTE), stability restriction on the time step and we prove the consistency using forward Euler in time and a fourth order discretization in space for Heat Equation with smooth initial conditions and Dirichlet boundary conditions.
