A Special Case on the Stability and Accuracy for the 1D Heat Equation Using 3-Level and θ-Schemes
ABSTRACT
We establish the conditions for the compute of the stability restriction and local accuracy on the time step and we prove the consistency and local truncation error by using θ-scheme and 3-level scheme for Heat Equation with smooth initial conditions and for some parameter θ∈[0,1].
