Description/Abstract

This tutorial discusses Laplace's equation for steady state heat flow in a two-dimensional region with fixed temperatures on the boundaries. The equilibrium temperatures are computed for a square grid using successive overrelaxation with parity ordering of the grid elements. The numerical method is illustrated by a Pascal algorithm. We assume that the reader is familiar with elementary calculus.
