## Numerical Solution of Time-Dependant PDEs

##### Abstract:

Partial differential equations (PDEs) can be used to model numerous physical processes, from steady-state heat distribution to the formation of black holes. When the solution changes over time, special techniques and considerations must be taken for their accurate solution. In this talk, I will briefly introduce the concepts, discuss a few of the concerns, and show some numerical results from simple model problems.
