### difference equations to solve wave equation

```i am new in matlab. Can any one help out in how to solve a the wave equation using finite difference methods(Say the five point method). I will be grateful. Thanks

Certainly.  Post the code that you've written so far and describe
specifically the problem that's stopped you from proceeding any further and
someone should offer an appropriate suggestion.

Which wave equation?
If it's water waves it could be:
Laplace, Boussinesq, Korteweg de Vries, St Venant,
linear dispersive, linear nondispersive, nonlinear dispersive,
nonlinear nondispersive,
etc
etc
etc

Your question is too vague and has nothing to do with Matlab at this
stage.
Come back when you have formulated the difference scheme and had a go
at coding it up in Matlab.
