Uniformly maximumnorm stable difference schemes

  • Bengt Hakberg


Sufficient conditions for maximumnorm stability, uniform in the mesh-widths, of implicit two-level difference schemes with constant coefficients are given. Uniform stability is a necessary and sufficient condition for consistent difference schemes to be convergent, when the mesh-widths are unrelated.
