### Finite Difference Methods with Different Linearization Techniques for the Modified Burgers' Equation

#### Abstract

Finite difference methods based on different linearization techniques have been proposed for the numerical solution of the modified Burgers' equation which is already and widely known in the literature. The methods, which are analyzed by the error norms $L_{2}$ and $L_{\infty }$ and by Fourier stability analysis method, have been tested for numerical examples and the results obtained from the computer runs are compared with the

relevant ones in the literature.
