In [[mathematics]], the '''discrete Poisson equation''' is the [[finite difference]] analog of the [[Poisson equation]]. In it, the [[discrete Laplace operator]] takes the place of the [[Laplace operator]]. The discrete Poisson equation is frequently used in [[numerical analysis]] as a standin for the continuous Poisson equation, although it is also studied in its own right as a topic in [[discrete mathematics]].
