matlab *.m files to solve PDEs using spectral methods.

If these programs strike you as slightly slow, they are. They would run more quickly if they were coded up in C or fortran. As matlab programs, would run more quickly if they were compiled using the matlab compiler and then run within matlab.

Here's a script from the March 20 class discussing power spectra of various functions class_mar20.m It uses the script find_spec.m .

Here's a script from the March 27 class comparing finite difference approximations of derivatives to spectral approximations of derivatives. class_mar27.m It uses the script d_mid.m, f.m, and fdiff.m and

All of the following codes are on [0,2 pi] and assume periodic boundary conditions.
