[itex]U(x,y,z,t)= \frac{Q}{8\sqrt{(πκt)^3}}*e^{-\frac{x^2+y^2+z^2}{4κt}}[/itex]

Where κ is thermal conductivity and Q is a measure for the strength of the heat source. However, I have only found a solution for a semi-infinite solid with surface temperature zero and a heat source inside the solid.

In my case however, the heat source is on the surface, (let's say in point (0,0,0)), hence surface temperature cannot be zero, yet to make matters (a little less) complicated, let's assume a perfectly insulated surface with no heat transfer..

Thanks in advance for help, or tips for usefull literature
