There is no diffusion in the system so it's a first order problem. I have my own solution using finite differences, but I would really like to use the PDE Toolbox for comparison because of the finite element approach. All the examples I have found have been second order PDEs - does any one have a suggestion how to proceed? Preferably in a way that is suitable for demonstration to 2nd year physics students. > Best, > Nanna
AFAIK, there is no MATLAB tool to solve this kind of PDE.
