BURGERS_SOLUTION
Exact Solutions of Time Dependent 1D Viscous Burgers Equation


BURGERS_SOLUTION, a MATLAB code which evaluates exact solutions of the time-dependent 1D viscous Burgers equation.

The form of the Burgers equation considered here is:

        du       du        d^2 u
        -- + u * -- = nu * -----
        dt       dx        dx^2
