First, follow through the general theory of solving differential equations:
then play with a simple Matlab code until you understand how it works:
Next, read through the general theory of modeling diffusion:
and run + alter the relevant Matlab code below, again making sure you understand how it works.
For the challenge, you will select one of the following three projects, each of which combine spatial diffusion with a system that can produce oscillations.
