A Finite Difference Scheme for the Heat Conduction Equation

Abstract

We use equations similar to the heat conduction equation to calulate heat transfer, radiation transfer and hydrostatical equilibrium in our stellar evolution programs. We tried various numerical schemes and found that the most convenient scheme for complicated calculations (nonlinear, multidimensional calculations) is a symmetrical semi-implicit (SSI… (More)
