2D Laplace Relaxation Applet Introduction

The 2D Laplace Relaxation Applet illustrates the solution of the 2D Laplace equation. It does not have its full functionality yet, and is currently limited to the geometry of a conducting circle inside of a conducting square.

Visualization of the potential is provided after the specified number of iterations have been performed. Potential values are color coded from black at the interior circle to white at the exterior square with red through blue indicating intermediate variations between black and white boundary values.
