We develop a new two level finite difference scheme for the 1D Pennes bioheat equation. We further prove that the scheme is stable and convergent unconditionally. Numerical experiments for a skin-heating model are conducted. 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. 0096-3003/$ see front matter 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.(More)
Despite the benefits in reducing the risk of stroke, primary prevention is not well translated into practice. We sought to evaluate patient compliance with guidelines and the cost of primary stroke prevention in southwest China. We consecutively enrolled 305 patients with headaches and/or dizziness who were at high risk of stroke from our hospital. We(More)
We derive truncation error representation for the sixth order combined compact diierence (CCD) scheme for discretizing a one dimensional partial diierential equation. We also show that, for a model one dimensional convection diiusion equation, the CCD scheme produces numerical oscillatory solution, when the cell Reynolds number condition is violated.(More)
