Abstract
This thesis examines the numerical solution to

Burgers' equation on a finite spatial domain with

various boundary conditions. We first conduct

experiments to confirm the numerical solutions

observed by other researchers for Neumann boundary

conditions. Then we consider the case where the

non-homogeneous Robin boundary conditions approach

non-homogeneous Neumann conditions. Finally we

numerically approximate the steady state solutions

to Burgers' equation with both the homogeneous and

non-homogeneous Robin boundary conditions.
