### Using Crank-Nicolson’s scheme to discretize the Laplacian in a polar gird system with symmetric and asymmetric lines

#### Abstract

system has been discretized on a 5 point stencil, extendable to nine points. The Tailor Series was used to discretize this scheme on 5-point stencils, which will be used in FORTRAN code for numerical approximation and can be visualized in OPEDX software. The Nicolson scheme is a ﬁnite difference scheme used to solve partial differential equations such as heat, wave, and diffusion equations in both 1-D and 2-D. Because of his extendable stencil, it will create accuracy and stability in the novel results of the scheme. These extendable stencils will reduce the error of the scheme and will assist researchers in ﬁnding novel results by solving ODES and PDES using the CN method.
