This reference presents approximately 1,000 solutions to boundary-value problems associated with Dirichlet, Neumann, and Robin boundary conditions. Coverage includes integral transforms and their inversion formulae, infinite and semi-infinite continua, bounded continuum, infinite and semi-infinite lamella, rectangle, quadrant layer and octant layer, cuboid, infinite and semi-infinite cylindrical continua, bounded cylindrical continuum, wedge-shaped infinite and semi-ion finite continua, wedge-shaped bounded continuum, and wedge. All semi-analytic solutions are accompanied by prescriptions for numerical computation. The diffusion coefficient and the initial and boundary conductions apply to fluid flow in a porous medium. All solutions can be applied to problems in heat conduction and mass transfer.
