Hi, I have written a matlab program to calculate the surface temperature on a tile and I am trying to find the most stable/accurate differenceing technique. I have plotted the surface temperature (where its actual value is ~122.5) against the time step for the differencing techniques shown below. All of them are accurate for small time steps, and then Backwards/DuFort decrease/increase parabolically, is this due to second order accuracy? And why is crank unstable for large timesteps and fowards isn't?
