Hi, I have a PDE with radial coordinates that has no analytic solution. Is there a way to generate the plot of the function using numerical methods in MATLAB?
Is there a tutorial for this? I could not find anything on MATLAB for a specific PDE that is not part of the MATLAB toolbox sets.

Could you please clearly write down the transformation from
y'''+(1-x^2)*y=0
to the u-formulation ?
I must admit that I don't understand what you are talking about.
Best wishes
Torsten.

For u(phi, theta):
u(0,0)=0
u'(0,0)=0
u''(pi,0)=0
u''(0,2pi)=10

you can use numerical methods to solve schrodinger equations like this for ex. Finite difference method.
