Steady State Heat in 2D

This is the simulation of the heating of rectangular piece of material. We set a cosine and a sine as boundary conditions. This is an elliptic equation, so the solution is smoother than the boundary data, as you can see in the applet. The maximim and minimum values are reached in the boundaries.
