Description

EX_ROBINBC1 1D Robin boundary condition example.

[ FEA, OUT ] = EX_ROBINBC1( VARARGIN ) Convection, diffusion, and reaction equation uxx+u*ux-u=exp(2x) on a line with a Robin boundary condition u(0)+ux(0)=2 and u(1)=exp(1), and exact solution exp(x). Accepts the following property/value pairs.
