I wasn't completely sure where to put this (programming or Diff.E.'s), so if there's a better place, maybe the mentors could move it for me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm doing some numerical simulations involving the (2-D) wave equation, and was wondering if anyone could tell me (or give a reference to a paper which would tell me) how to implement a boundary condition which will prevent reflections?

For now I'm just doing a straightforward centered difference, I may implement a higher order method later, depending how much time I have.
