1D Linear Advection

Semi-Lagrangian Method: Periodic

Time Steps:

Assume that the domain is from $$x=0$$ to $$x=3$$ and that the wave has a period $$\frac{1}{c}$$.

Choose the wave speed $$c$$, step size $$\Delta x$$, and the CFL number $$\geq1$$.

Note the large calculated step time $$\Delta t$$ and the number of time steps which should be a multiple of 10, or no more than 10.
