I do not see an 'h_x' and 'h_y' there? How come this is for
non uniform?
Any way. There is no time domain index.
The current matrix represents the current time.
When writing T(i,j)= T(i,j) + .....
you are basically updating in time the LHS from the older
time step in the RHS.
If needed, depending on the algorithm, another copy of the matrix T is used.
That is all. You do not need to keep a copy of T for each time step. THat is not
how things are implemented. Else, you'll run out of RAM soon, and it makes no
sense to keep a copy of T for each time step.
