21. Effect of Varying Step-Size in Approximation of Differential Equations by Abdullahi Salisu Volume28, No. 1, (November, 2014), pp 127 – 130
Sale price: $5.00


In this paper, we use the Conventional Finite Difference Approximation schemes of the first and second order derivatives of a function to examine and analyze the effect of varying step-size in finite approximation. We then use these finite difference 

quotients to solve some differential equation problems using different values of step-size to help establish the effect of varying step-size on the approximated solution. The technique is illustrated using an Excel (Spreadsheet) package.
