Stability of Peaceman-Rachford.

e aim to convert the scheme ( Alternating directions1 ),( Alternating directions2 ) to the canonical form by eliminating the $\tilde{u}$ . Add the equations ( Alternating directions1 ),( Alternating directions2 ): MATH and substitute $\tilde{u}$ from ( Alternating boundary ): MATH Note that $\Lambda_{x}$ and $\Lambda_{y}$ are commutative. We transform the last expression as follows: MATH MATH MATH Finally, we write the evolution equation MATH where MATH MATH MATH For stability it is sufficient to have MATH Such results follow from the spectral considerations of the Crank-Nicolson ( Crank Nicolson spectrum ) and implicit ( Implicit spectrum ) schemes and the minimax theorem ( Minmax theorem ).

One may ask "Wait a moment, how about the boundary conditions?". The answer is "Check the trick around the ( Boundary trick )".
