Partial differential equations describe how the three/four dimensional world works. Solving such equations is the key to understanding the behaviour of many physical, chemical, biological or financial systems. A large range of numerical methods is available to solve such problems (for example finite difference, finite element, finite volume, boundary element or pseudo-spectral methods to name a few). This project would investigate the use of one or more of these methods for solving a well-known PDE.
