STOCHASTIC_DIFFUSION
Stochastic Diffusivity
STOCHASTIC_DIFFUSION
is a C library which
implement several versions of a stochastic diffusivity coefficient,
using GNUPLOT to create graphic images of sample realizations of
the diffusivity field.
The 1D diffusion equation has the form
 d/dx ( DC(X) d/dx U(X) ) = F(X).
where DC(X) is a function called the diffusivity and F(X) is
called the source term or forcing term.
In the 1D stochastic version of the problem, the diffusivity function
includes the influence of stochastic parameters:
 d/dx ( DC(X;OMEGA) d/dx U(X;OMEGA) ) = F(X).
The 2D diffusion equation has the form
 Del ( DC(X,Y) Del U(X,Y) ) = F(X,Y).
In the 2D stochastic version of the problem, the diffusivity function
includes the influence of stochastic parameters:
 Del ( DC(X,Y;OMEGA) Del U(X,Y;OMEGA) ) = F(X,Y).
