This paper aims to present a numerical solution of non‐linear Burger's equation using differential quadrature method based on sinc functions.
Sinc Differential Quadrature Method is used for space discretization and four stage Runge‐Kutta algorithm is used for time discretization. A rate of convergency analysis is also performed for shock‐like solution. Numerical stability analysis is performed.
Sinc Differential Quadrature Method generates more accurate solutions of Burgers' equation when compared with the other methods.
This combination, Sinc Differential Quadrature and Runge‐Kutta of order four, has not been used to obtain numerical solutions of Burgers' equation.
