Unformatted text preview: (5.2.3) is equivalent to the PeacemanRachford form of ADI (5.1.5) for the heat conduction equation. Unlike the PeacemanRachford implementation, however, a portion of the
operator is neglected at each step.
Let's apply (5.2.3) to the variablecoe cient heat conduction equation

1u = ( L u)
x x 2u = ( L u)

method (5.1.5). The way that we have split the operator, (5.2.4a) would be solved by
columns and (5.2.4b) would be solved by rows. Proceeding in the opposite manner is
acceptable.

discretize the spatial operators L1 and L2 using centered di erences, we would obtain the
same CrankNicolson scheme (5.1.4a) that we rejected. Now, instead, let's factor each
operator as I 2t 1 L t t )(I

We have already shown that the nexttolast term on the right is O( t3) thus, it may
be combined with the discretization error to obtain
n n jk jk (I ; 2t L1)(I ; 2t L2)u +1 = (I + 2t L1)(I + 2t L2)u + O( t3 ):
If we neglect the local discretization error and discretize the spatial operators, we obtain
n n jk jk (I ; 2t L1 )(I ; 2t L2 )U +1 = (I + 2t L1 )(I + 2t L2 )U
