Consistency, Stability and Convergence Numerical solution of PDE approaches the continuum solution as step sizes go to zero: convergent Individual terms approach continuum derivatives (Newtons’ limit to the derivative): consistent approximation Boundedness of solution: stability
Von Neumann Stability Analysis for Model Equations For a stable solution, the errors must not amplify in time. That is: 1 1 n i n tability: Model Equation: i Stability: Diffusion restriction 2 2 CC D tx  t 2 1 2 Dt x Courant Condition 0 U  1 Ut x t The number is also called CFL (Courant-Fredericks-Lewy) number x   
