U=dirich(f1,f2,f3,f4,a,b,h,tol,max1)
```function U=dirich(f1,f2,f3,f4,a,b,h,tol,max1)

%Input - f1,f2,f3,f4 are boundary functions input as strings
%      - a and b right endpoints of [0,a] and [0,b]
%      - h step size
%      - tol is the tolerance
%Output - U solution matrix; analogous to Table 10.6
