now by defining several dimensionless variables, we got another form of diffusion equation:

X,T,U here are all dimensionless.

U with initial conditions:

and boundary conditions :

find the analytic solution of this problem.

what i got here,

but i have no idea how to solve. - January 19th 2009, 04:48 PMJester
If you were to solve

subject to

you would use a separation of variables and ultimately lead to

where

Since you have a source term in your new equation

then find a Fourier sine series for the source term of the form

and seek a solution of your porblem in the form

where is to be determined (this should give rise to an ODE for ). - January 19th 2009, 06:21 PMsilversandhow
how to determine the coefficients : ?
