In HELM booklet 32.4 and 32.5, we saw methods of obtaining numerical solutions to Parabolic and Hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs). Another class of PDEs are the Elliptic type, and these usually model time-independent situations. In this Section we will concentrate on two particularly important Elliptic type PDEs: Laplace’s equation and Poisson’s equation.
