 March 25, 2006, 22:12 Can someone tell me how to solve this equation! #1 Guangli Guest   Posts: n/a Hi: Hello everyone ,i'm a beginner of numerical simulation, and i met a problem, can someone help me ,many thanks. I want to solve the equation div(f(s)grad(s))=R(x,y) for 2D,where f(s)is highly relative with S,if i solve it as follows: assuming S-----calculate f(s)-------solve the equation-----update f(s)------solve the equation-----....... It seems the result is not reasonable,can someone help me for other methods,thanks! sincerely Guangli
