Abstract
We present the numerical solution of twopoint boundary value problems for a third order linear PDE, representing a linear evolution in one space dimension. The difficulty of this problem is in the numerical imposition of the boundary conditions, and to our knowledge, no such computations exist. Instead of computing the evolution numerically, we evaluate the solution representation formula obtained by the unified transform, also known as Fokas transform. This representation involves complex line integrals, but in order to evaluate these integrals numerically, it is necessary to deform the integration contours using appropriate deformation mappings. We formulate a strategy to implement effectively this deformation, which allows us to obtain accurate numerical results.
