Poisson equation occurs in many forms in CFD. Efficient and fast solution to Poisson equation is important aspect of CFD.

In CFD the Poisson equation occurs mainly in the form:

${\partial \over {\partial x_j }}\left( {\Gamma {{\partial \phi } \over {\partial x_j }}} \right) = q_\phi$

## The solution

The left hand side can be discretised in the manner explained in section diffusive term
