Numerical Solutions Applied To Heat Transfer And Fluid
Iterative Solution of Linear Equations, Basics
Notes for this week's classes are available as Word documents. Look
at my introductory remarks before continuing
to the remainder of the notes. This
week we will be covering the most basic iterative methods. These
have been covered in more books than I can count, so you can get more material
on the subject from the library. As a minimum, you should read the
general information provided in the Templates
document. Start with their overview
of iterative methods. This week we will be discussing "Stationary"
iterative methods. In particular we will cover the Jacobi,
Overrelaxation (SOR) methods. If nothing else, your goal
this week should be to learn enough so that the material in the relevant
sections of the Templates document make sense.
