Vibrating String PDE Model 

written by Francisco Esquembre and Dieter Roess

The Vibrating String PDE Model solves the one-dimensional wave equation using an explicit difference method. The wave equation is a second-order linear partial differential equation, obtained by considering the forces which apply to a small element of the string of length dx.
