I have the following PDE(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

PDE: u_{t}=A^{2}(u_{xx}+u_{yy})+f(x,y,t) such that A is a constant

BC: u_{x}(1,y,t)=0

u_{x}(0,y,t)=0

u_{y}(x,1,t)=0

u(x,0,t)=0

IC: u(x,y,0)=0

I've set up my ODEs using seperation of variables to get

X''/X=k_{1}Y''/Y=k_{2}T'/(A^{2})T=k_{1}+k_{2}

where k_{1}and k_{2}are constants.

How do I account for my source term (f(x,y,t))? I'm reading up on eigenfunction expansion but so far it's only for the dimensional case.
