Stability Restrictions on Second Order, Three Level Finite Difference Schemes for Parabolic Equations, December 1978 James M. Varah

In this paper we are concerned with second order schemes which are easy to use, and apply readily to nonlinear equations. We examine the stability restrictions for such schemes using linear stability analysis, and illustrate their behaviour on Burgers' equation.
