Intermediate boundary conditions for LOD, ADI, and approximate factorization methods

Abstract. A general approach to determining the correct intermediate boridnry conditions for dimensional splitting methods is presented a2d illustrated. The intermediate solution U is viewed as a second-order accurate approximation EO a modified equation. Deriving the modified equation and using the relationship between. this equation and the original squation allows us to determine the correct boundary conditions for U illustrate this technique, we apply it to LOD and AD1 methods for the heat equstim in two and three space dimensions. The approximate factorization method is considered in slightly more generality.
