Grids To apply difference equations to multidimensional problems, we divide the space into many points located on a mathematical grid. ∆x ∆y x y node i-1, j+1 i-1, j i-1, j-1 i+1, j+1 i+1, j i+1, j-1 i, j i, j+1 i, j-1
Grids If we assume that there is a known value of ‘z’ at every intersection (or node), we can write central difference- You can extend this to 2-3 dimensional system…… j i j i j i j i y const central n x x z z x z x z , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 ' ' 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , ' ' j i j i j i j i x const central n y y z z y z y z

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
