General Linear Second Order Equation (2.15)
(
ut + (k(x)ux (x, t)x = f (x)
u
t = 0
Can be generalized to
f (x) = a(x)u00 (x) + b(x)u0 (x) + c(x)u(x)
u(a) =
u(b)

Method of Undeteremined Coefficients
If you want to approximate a derivative,
k
X
u0 (
x) Du(
x) =
aj u(
x = jh)
j=k
We then do a Taylo
We have the Dirichlet Boundary Condition for 0 x 1

u (x) = f (x)
u(0) =
u(1) =
And we let
D2 u =
1
(u(x h) 2u(x) + u(x + h)
h2
Now we can say

We can discretize our domain, into smaller intervals. Let [, ] = [0, 1] and
we can
