This chapter introduces the reader to various basic aspects of numerical simulation, including derivation of partial differential equations, construction of finite difference schemes, implementation in Diffpack, and visualization of the simulation results. Particular attention is paid to fundamental concepts in Diffpack and C++ programming that will be needed for further reading of the book.
