Unformatted text preview: 2 2 u tt ( x i , 0); from the equation, u tt ( x i , 0) = c 2 u xx ( x i , 0) = c 2 f 00 ( x i ) ≈ c 2 ( f ( ih )2 f (( i1) h ) + f (( i2) h )) /h 2 . Then, for each j +1 = 3 ,...,N , (1) is a linear system for the unknown vector ( u 2 ,j +1 ,...,u M,j +1 ), and all you need is to solve this system. The matrix A of this system is of size ( M1) × ( M1), with 2(1+ m 2 ) on the main diagonal,m 2 just above and below the main diagonal, and 0 elsewhere. If you write U ( j ) for the vectorcolumn ( u 2 ,j ,...,u M1 ,j ), then the system to solve is AU ( j + 1) = 4 U ( j )AU ( j1) ....
