Circuler grid need to be solved by Finite difference method pls help me

    Circuler grid need to be solved by Finite difference method!! pls help me...

    hi this is the picture of the problem.. i have studied the rectangular grid but not the circular grid... now pls someone help me to find out the way to solve a heat conduction problem for circle using finite difference method.

    1/r δ/δr (r δT/δr)+ 1/r^2 ((δ^2 T)/(δΦ^2 ))=0
    this is the two dimensional equation and the discritise values are below...

    1) 1/r δ/δr (r δT/δr)= 1/r (δT/δr)+(δ^2 T)/(δr^2 )=1/r (T_((i,j,k)-T_((i+1,j,k) ) )/Δr)+((T_((i+1.j.k) )+T_((i-1,j,k) )-2T_((i,j,k) ))/(Δr^2 ))

    2) 1/r^2 ((δ^2 T)/(δΦ^2 ))= 1/r^2 ((T_((i.j+1.k) )+T_((i,j-1,k) )-2T_((i,j,k) ))/(ΔΦ^2 ))
