Item DescriptionApplication of a New Approach to the Computational Solution of A System of Two Non-Linear Partial Differential Equations; prepared for United States Air Force Project R
Includes FORTRAN listings. 'Methods are applied to a system of two equations, numerical results are provided, including per cent error, and FORTRAN listings are given... The equations are similar to those of hydrodynamics, exhibiting shocks, and have a simple representation for the solution. A numerical method of integration is proposed which preserves boundedness and positivity. Time and memory requirements are small' (from the Preface and Summary)
Includes Introduction, Two Partial Differential Equations, Finite Difference Approximation, Polynomial Approximation, Numerical Procedure for FORTRAN IBM 7090 Program, Numerical Results. Table 1 - Illustrative Numerical Results. N=4, M=4; Table 2 - Illustrative Numerical Results N=5, M=5; Table 3 - Illustrative Numerical Results, N=10, M=10; Table 4 - Illustrative Numerical Result N=10, M=5; FORTRAN List (5 pages); References.
