Abstract


This paper represents a comparative study of the Lax-Friedrich scheme and Lax-Wendroff’s scheme for the numerical solution of Burger’s equation. Performing  the numerical computation of the Burger’s equation by using the first order and second order schemes respectively, we verify the numerical features like accuracy, rate of convergence and efficiency of the schemes for given initial and boundary values

Keywords


Burger’s equation, Finite difference schemes, Numerical solution, initial value problem, Lax-Friedrich scheme, Lax-Wendroff’s scheme.
