Using a mesh increment ∆x = 0.1, determine f (x) at x = 2 with forward-diﬀerence formula, the central-diﬀerence formula, and the second order three-point formula. Compare the results with the exact value. Repeat the comparison for ∆x = 0.2. Have the order estimates for truncation errors been a reliable guide? Discuss this point. 3. Develop a ﬁnite diﬀerence approximation with T.E. of O (∆y ) for ∂ 2 u/∂y 2 at point (i, j ) using ui,j , ui,j +1, ui,j −1 when the grid spacing is not uniform. Use the Taylor series method. Can you devise a three point scheme with second-order accuracy with unequal spacing? Before you draw your ﬁnal conclusions, consider the use of compact implicit representations. 4. Establish the T.E. for the following ﬁnite diﬀerence approximation to ∂u/∂y at the point (i, j ) for a uniform mesh: −3ui,j + 4ui,j +1 − ui,j +2 ∂u ≈ . ∂y 2∆y What is the order? 291 ...
