Numerical Solution of Heat Equation with Singular Robin Boundary Condition




Eigenvalue Problems, Finite Difference Method, Robin Boundary Conditions, Numerical Solutions


In this work we study the numerical solution of one-dimensional heat
diffusion equation with a small positive parameter subject to Robin boundary conditions. The simulations examples lead us to conclude that the numerical solutions
of the differential equation with Robin boundary condition are very close of the
analytic solution of the problem with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions
when tends to zero
