Hey, im working on a tridiagonal solver, aka the Thomas Algorithm to solve boundary value problems for my graduate course in cfd at the university of arizona. I am writing my codes in c++. the problem with my code is that my solution oscillates at every point, one a negative value and the next being a positive value, all through my domain. this is very weird to me and i dont know what to do...
Thanks for your help in advance.

take a look at the algo given at our wiki reference. That algorithm works well because i am using it now a days without any problems. In fact my new solver works heavly around it and it performs beautifully.

Check your coefficients carefully by printing them, or use this algo to validate small test problem first.
