Consider the boundary value problem for Laplace's equation on a unit square u=0 (x y) 2 u(x y) = 0 iif x = 0 y = 1 (x y) 2 @ : 1 f x=1 y=0 14 Solution Techniques for Elliptic Problems K 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 k ν+1 (j,k) 1 0 1 0 ν 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 j J Figure 9.2.1: Gauss-Seidel iteration with row ordering. Let us solve this problem on a 3 3 mesh using Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel iteration with x = y = 1=3 hence, using (8.1.2) with x = y = 1=4 and fjk = 0, we have Ujk = 1 (Uj+1 k + Uj;1 k + Uj k+1 + Uj k;1) j k = 1 2: 4 The Jacobi iteration is ( ) j k=1 2 = 0 1 ::: : Ujk +1) = 1 (Uj(+1 k + Uj(;)1 k + Uj( k)+1 + Uj( k);1) 4 (0) Starting with the trivial initial guess Ujk = 0, j k = 1 2, we present solutions after the one and ve iterations in Table 9.2.1. The exact solution and di erences between the exact and Jacobi solutions after ve iterations are shown in Table 9.2.2. The Gauss-Seidel method for this problem is 1) ( = 0 1 ::: : Ujk +1) = 4 (Uj(+1 k + Uj(;+1) + Uj( k)+1 + Uj( k+1) ) 1k ;1 Its solution after ve iterations is shown in Table 9.2.3. The maximum error after ve Jacobi iterations is 0.01656 and after ve Gauss-Seidel iterations is 0.00146. Thus, as expected, Gauss-Seidel iteration is converging faster than Jacobi iteration 9.2.

### What students are saying

• 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.
