 February 11, 2007, 04:01 4th order discretization of 2nd order difference #1 dusky.He Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Does anyone can tell me the form of 4th-order discretization of 2-order difference in cylindrical coordinate. In Cartesian coordinate, it is (-F(i-2)+16F(i-1)-30F(i)+16F(i+1)-F(i+2))/(12*dx)

If, whatever u have wrote, is correct in Cartesian co-ordinate, it is correct in Cylindrical co-ordinate as well. So, enjoy!! you already have what r u looking for What changes with change in co-ordinate system is terms itself, not the way it is discretized. hope it helps.
