Explicit Method It can be shown (later lecture) that the Explicit Scheme is only stable when the Courant number (r) : Therefore for a given mesh density we have a restriction on the time step size. To overcome this limitation on the time step size we use implicit methods. 11 α 2 5 . 0 . 5 . 0 x t e i r

12 Implicit Methods For explicit methods the space derivative is approximated at the previous time step. For implicit methods the space derivative is approximated at the latest time step.

    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.
