Numerical Analysis: Numerical solution of a thin plate heat transfer problem


The numerical solution of a system of linear equations resulting from a discrete approximation to a thin plate heat transfer problem is considered. The slow convergence of point iterative methods is analyzed and shown to be caused by one of the boundary conditions. The difficulty may be removed by a standard line iterative technique.
