Question: 2D numerical Integration Error

Hi,

I have been trying to solve 2D Diffusion Equation with zero Neumann BC over the unit disk. If I use Gaussian type function with a sharp peak as initial condition, I get huge errors between initial values. Let's say u(r,phi,t) is the solution of the PDE and f(r,phi) is initial value function. The expectation is for the point (r*,phi*) ,  u(r*,phi*,0)=f(r*,phi*), but it is not.

Is Numerical integration in Maple not able to handle such sharp peak? I tried some of the built-in methods such as MonteCarlo,CubaVegas but no difference.

It might be a good idea to specify some nodes arround the peak. There is a command called "peaks", but I could not use it, error message says "invalid arguments".

Thanks in advance.
