    the rate of change of temperature (the rate of thermal conduction) with respect to (whatever x may be, say time) = 0 ie, the rate of thermal conduction is constant

    In general, d[variable]/d[another variable] is the rate of change of [variable] wrt [another variable]. If that derivative is 0, then [variable] is not changing.
