Poisson Solvers

  • Eric F. Van de Velde
Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 16)


In this chapter, some elementary solution methods for the Poisson equation on a rectangular domain will be introduced. The algorithms used in the implementation of these elementary methods are fundamental building blocks in the construction of programs that solve other, more general, partial-differential equations.
