3. Determine the stability requirement to solve the 1-D heat equation with a source term ∂u ∂t = α 2 u ∂x 2 + ku Use the central-space, forward-time diFerence method. Does the von Neumann necessary condition make physical sense for this type of computational problem? The method is u n +1 j =(1+ k t 2 r ) u n j + r u n j +1 + u n j 1 Substitute a ±ourier mode and we get the following equation for

Unformatted text preview: λ λ = 1 + k ∆ t − 2 r + 2 r cos β = 1 + 2 r (cos β − 1 | {z } = − 2 sin 2 β 2 ) + k ∆ t λ = 1 − 4 r sin 2 β 2 + k ∆ t If r ≤ 1 2 then λ ≤ 1 + O (∆ t ) The ∆ t term makes sense since ku term allows the solution to grow in time and thus λ (and the numerical solution) must be allowed to grow. 323...
