D.11.4 findifs_lib

Tools for the finite difference schemes
Viktor Levandovskyy, levandov@math.rwth-aachen.de

We provide the presentation of difference operators in a polynomial, semi-factorized and a nodal form. Running findifs_example(); will demonstrate, how we generate finite difference schemes of linear PDEs from given approximations.

Theory: The method we use have been developed by V. Levandovskyy and Bernd Martin. The computation of a finite difference scheme of a given single linear partial differential equation with constant coefficients with a given approximation rules boils down to the computation of a Groebner basis of a submodule of a free module with respect to the ordering, eliminating module components.
