Hello experts,
I have to solve the following equation to find a converged solution. At i=0, T=10 and at i=5, T=50. (n=5)
I want to get the converged solution of T at i=2, 3, 4.
I'm fairly comfortable with MATLAB but this is the first time that I'm using MATLAB for these kind of mathematical approach and I'm learning completely alone, relying on online materials.
How should I approach this? I'd appreciate your recommendations, reading materials, suggestions and/or pointers rather than a complete code at this point.
I know the question is vague but I'd welcome any suggestions for starting points :)
TIA!

Hello experts,
I am trying to solve the finite difference methof for crank nicolson scheme to 2d heat equation. please let me know if you have any MATLAB CODE for this Boundary codition are If you can kindly send me the matlab code, it will be very useful for my research work . thank you very much.

T = zeros(6,5);
T(1:6,1) = 10;
T(1:6,5) = 50;
T(1,2) = 73;
T(1,3) = 100;
T(1,4) = 85;
for n=1:5
for i =2:4
T(n+1,i) = T(n,i) + 0.3*(T(n,i+1)-2*T(n,i)+T(n,i-1));
end
end

Thank you, Torsten. I think that was what I wanted. It was my fault that I didn't post the question correctly :)
I'm still learning and I will try your suggestion.
