Department of Chemical Engineering University of California, Santa Barbara ChE 230A Fall 2006 Instructor: Glenn Fredrickson Discussion Topic #12 For Discussion Section: Friday, December 1, 2006 Consider the solution of Poisson’s equation 2 u ( x, y ) = ρ ( x, y ) for an unknown function u ( x, y ), where the function ρ ( x, y ) is a prescribed function (e.g. a charge density) for some domain of x and y , and subject to appropriate boundary conditions.

Unformatted text preview: For the special case of a square domain and periodic boundary conditions in both x and y , devise a spectral method using two-dimensional FFTs to solve the equation. Provide a numerical example using one or more arbitrary choices for ρ . Note that ρ ( x,y ) must have the property that R dx R dy ρ ( x,y ) = 0, where the domain of integration is over the square. Can you explain why?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
