I'm trying to solve the PDE:
[itex]\frac{\partial^2 f(x,t)}{\partial x^2}=\frac{\partial f(x,t)}{\partial t}[/itex] with [itex]x \in [1,1][/itex] and boundary conditions f(1,t)=f(1,t)=0. Thought that [itex]e^{i(kx\omega t)}[/itex] would work, but that obviously does not fit with the boundary conditions. Has anyone an idea?

P.S. You will also need some kind of initial condition.
