This chapter is an introduction to finite difference approximation methods. Key concepts like local truncation error, numerical stability and convergence of approximate solutions are developed in a one-dimensional setting. This chapter establishes the theoretical framework that is used to analyse the convergence of finite difference approximations in later chapters.
