Timestep Control for the Numerical Solutions of Initial-Boundary-Value Problems
The process of dynamic time-step selection for fixed spatial resolution based on the idea of balancing different local truncation errors will be presented. Some theoretical justification and numerical results will also be given. The application of iterative improvement to ADI methods will also be discussed.
