[MPI] Solving the advection equation in parallel

In chemistry, engineering and earth sciences, advection is a transport mechanism of a substance or conserved property by a fluid due to the fluid’s bulk motion.

Mathematics describes the process of advection with the advection equation:

\frac{\partial\psi}{\partial t}+\nabla\cdot\left(\psi{\bold u}\right)=0

In my course on Parallel programming, I had to implement a solution to a particular advection equation, with  the initial and boundary conditions defined. Read more of this post
