About this book


This book is the result of frustration. When I first became interested in digi­ tal simulation in 1967 (I didn't know the name then), there were no texts to tell one the how of it. This has not changed greatly since then; it is significant that just about all publications about the technique refer to a chapter by Feldberg in an electrochemical series, written in 1969. When I ran a course on the method recently, it became evident that this chapter is not enough for the raw beginner. Neither does he/she get much help from the mathematical textbooks which, at best, leave the special electrochemical aspects (if not a lot else) to one's imagination. This book, then, is written for practical digital simulators who do not have a friend who will tell them how to do it. The beauty of the digital approach is that one can separate out various dynamic processes taking place simultaneously. I have structured the book in this way. The major computing usually lies in the diffusion of substance, while the major program­ ming effort (and preparatory paper work) goes into the boundary conditions. These are treated separately.
