(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

v_{t}(x,t)=v_{xx}(x,t) + p(x,t),

Neumann boundary conditions,

v(x,0)=cos(∏x)

2. Relevant equations

Assume v(x,t)=X(x)T(t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm stuck. We aren't given a p(x,t) and I'm not sure what to do. Where do I go from here?
