In summary, we want to find a function u ( t,x ) , 0 t < , 0 x L , of two variables that satisfies the Heat Equation u t ( t,x ) = a 2 u xx ( t,x ) , 0 t < , 0 x L , ( E ) the Left and Right Boundary Conditions u ( t, 0) = 0 and u ( t,L ) = 0 , 0 t < , ( BC ) and the Initial Condition u (0 ,x ) = f ( x ) , 0 x L . ( IC ) Our strategy is going to be this: first find all functions that satisfy the Three Green conditions; then identify among those that function u that also satisfies the Red ini- tial condition . 2

Three Green con- ditions are linear: by that I mean that if u 1 ,u 2 ,...,u n are functions satisfying the Three Green conditions, then any linear combination c 1 u 1 + c 2 u 2 + ··· + c n u n also satisfies the Three Green conditions. This allows us to try for very special solu- tions of the Three Green conditions, namely those that have their variables separated:
