I once used this averaging algorithm to solve a boundary value Laplace

problem with MATHCAD. It is tedious to set up (stick to a simple geometry)

and very tedious in lengthy computing time. But the advantage is that

MathCad immediately gives you very enlightening graphs of the results: x vs

y plots, contour maps, little E field arrows or even perspective drawings of

the potential.

Anyone interested (it needs MathCad 6 Plus or better) can get my code by

asking. It takes some slight "trickery" to get MathCad to iterate.
