Since its publication more than 15 years ago, Heat Conduction Using Green’s Functions has become the consummate heat conduction treatise from the perspective of Green’s functions—and the newly revised Second Edition is poised to take its place. Based on the authors’ own research and classroom experience with the material, this book organizes the solution of heat conduction and diffusion problems through the use of Green’s functions, making these valuable principles more accessible. As in the first edition, this book applies extensive tables of Green’s functions and related integrals, and all chapters have been updated and revised for the second edition, many extensively.

The book reflects the authors’ conviction that although Green’s functions were discovered in the nineteenth century, they remain directly relevant to 21st-century engineers and scientists. It chronicles the authors’ continued search for new GFs and novel ways to apply them to heat conduction.
