Unformatted text preview: What is the molecule? How would you compute a time plane $n+1$ assuming that time plane $n$ is already known? Under what conditions will this scheme converge for all initial data? What is the accuracy? If you believe in the CFL condition for stability, it implies the scheme can only be stable for $\Delta t << \Delta x$. Does that agree with your results? How would you rate this scheme compared to the standard FTCS for the heat equation? Show all reasoning and intermediate results leading to your answer. \begin{rawhtml} <BR><A HREF="figures/1.gif">Solution page 1.</A> <BR><A HREF="figures/2.gif">Solution page 2.</A> \end{rawhtml} \end{document}...
