Abstract: This paper is concerned with the formulation of finite-difference analogues of mixed boundary value problems for Poisson's equation. A discrete approximation to the normal derivative is devised such that the matrix of the resulting system is of monotone type. This enables us to prove that the rate of convergence is $ O({h^2})$, where h is the mesh constant.
