    Hi, I am writing program to model the heat flow through different space shuttle tiles. I have got it working using four different methods: Forward differencing, Backward differencing, Crank-Nicolson, DuFort-Frankel and all four methods give me similar results. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each method?
