Hi everyone:

I am very rusty on linear algebra, so apologies if this is a silly question. The question is, in the system below, is it correct to take the calculated value of u

I need to incorporate a finite difference calculation for 1-dimensional advection in some code I'm writing. I have derived the system of equations that I need, but my linear algebra is so rusty that I'm stuck on what to do next/how to actually use them. I'm hoping that the solution I proposed will be sufficient. If it isn't, what method from linear algebra should I use?

I would very much appreciate any help. Thank you all.

Here is the system (a and d are constants that I can specify):

_{i}^{k+1}from each PREVIOUS step and simply plug it in at the NEXT step where (a * u_{i-1}^{k+1}is required.I need to incorporate a finite difference calculation for 1-dimensional advection in some code I'm writing.
