A nonstandard numerical method for the modified KdV equation



A linearly implicit nonstandard finite difference method is presented for the numerical solution of modified Korteweg–de Vries equation. Local truncation error of the scheme is discussed. Numerical examples are presented to test the efficiency and accuracy of the scheme.
