PDE into convode

  1. Apr 2, 2009 #1
    Could someone tell me how to enter the following PDE into convode (or some other pde engine - feel free to solve it yourself if you like!).

    Its LaPlace's equation

    U_xx + U_yy = 0

    given U=0 when x=0
    U=0 when x=1
    U=0 when y=0
    U=x when y=1

    I've used Convode before but when the initial conditions were U=2 at (x,y)=(2,1) for example...

    Re: Convode

    I did try using convode some time ago. I think there are examples on that web site on how to input the commands. But I'm not sure whether they have example on Laplace equation.

    One thing that I don't like about convode is that they give you the feedback in French which I don't understand.
