In this project we explore the Sinc collocation method to solve an initial and boundary value problem of nonlinear wave equation. The Sinc collocation method is based upon interpolation technique, by discretizing the function and its spatial derivatives using linear combination of translated Sinc functions. Our project will focus on multiple boundary conditions such as the well known Dirichlet and Neumann conditions. Our project will also focus on two established nonlinear partial differential equations: the Sine-Gordon equation and the Kortweg-de Vries equation.
