Selection of a Step Size n Select a random step size, h, if not specified. n Tabulate the results obtained using that step size n Choose a lower step size, say about 0.2h n Run the iteration scheme and tabulate the results n Check new results against the previous results, and obtain the difference. ¡ If the difference is less than a specified tolerance limit, convergence has been achieved with regards the step size, and h is an appropriate size, keeping in mind computational
