Lesson 1.3 — Stability and Accuracy (channel flow cont. from L1.1)

In the previous two lessons, we leant how to start simulation (Lesson 1.1), and some of display operations (Lesson 1.2). In Lesson 1.2, we also observed there are numerical oscillations in the velocity and vorticity fields (Figs. 9 and 10 of Lesson 1.2). In this lesson, we will learn how to set some of parameters in grid.txt for better accuracy and/or numerical stability.
