  • Abstract

    This paper considers the Airy ordinary differential equation (ODE) and different ways it can be discretized. We first consider a standard discretization using the central difference scheme. We then consider two difference schemes which were created using a nonstandard methodology. Finally, we compare the different schemes and how well they approximate solutions to the Airy ODE.
