In this work, two problems will be presented: The Taylor Vortex problem and the Driven Cavity problem. Both problems are solved using the Stream function-Vorticity formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations in 2D. Results are obtained using two methods: A fixed point iterative method and another one working with matrixes A and B resulting from the discretization of the Laplacian and the advective term, respectively. This second method resulted faster than the fixed point iterative one.
