A Lecture notes on Finite Difference Methods

0
I have lately been working with Numerical Analysis and I am using Finite Difference Methods for Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations by Randall J. LeVeque. It was recommended to me by a friend of mine (physicist)


However, Sometimes the chapters can be long and difficult to understand. I was wondering if you guys know any Slides or lecture notes I can use as a supplement for LeVeques book? as of now I am mainly interested in Chapters 2,3,4.

Have you tried Wikipedia? This page is a start. I find the best way to learn is to pick an equation you want to solve (Laplace's equation in 2D or the wave equation in 1d are good places to start), and then write some code to solve it. The act of writing the code is where the learning happens.
