Not what you're looking for?

3. Suppose that u(x. t) satisfies the diffusion equation

ut = kuxx

for 0 < x < L and t > 0, and the Robin boundary conditions ux(0, t) ? aou(0, t) = 0 and ux(L, t) + aLu(L, t) = 0

where k, L, a0 and aL are all positive constants.

Show that ... is a decreasing function of t.
