Table 5 \(L_{1}\) and \(L_{\infty }\) errors and CPU time at some different values of time-step size k and spatial mesh size \(h=0.01\), \(\epsilon =0.01\) of Problem 2 using FTCS-ϵ, where \(T_{\max }=2.5\times 10^{-3}\)

From: On the numerical solution of Fisher’s equation with coefficient of diffusion term much smaller than coefficient of reaction term
