The generalized differential quadrature method as an accurate and efficient numerical method is developed for the Burgers equation. The numerical algorithm for this class of problem is presented. Differential quadrature approximation of needed derivatives is given by a weighted linear sum of the function values at grid points. Recurrence relationship is used for calculation of weighting coefficients. The calculated numerical results are compared with exact solutions to show the quality of the generalized differential quadrature solutions for each example. Numerical examples have shown accuracy of the GDQ method with relatively small computational effort.
