Solve the heat equation
on the real line ℝ with the initial conditions:
u(x,0)= 1 if |x| [itex]\leq[/itex]1, 0 for any other value of x
I don't even know where to start for this question, but I believe that I will have to use a fourier transform, and perhaps separation of variables, to find a solution to this problem
