Relaxation Method for 2D Laplace Equation

This Applet illustrates the solution of the 2D Laplace equation. 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. Successively clicking the start button carries out additional iterations.
