Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay: i need to use derivative to verify that : p(x,t) = (1/(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) Exp[ x^2/(4 t) is the solution of the diffusion equation dp/dt= d^2p/dx^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got the value for dp/dt with the function :pt = D[(1./(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) Exp[ x^2/(4 t)], t]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dx = D[(1./(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) Exp[ x^2/(4 t)], {x, 2}] is there soemthign wrong with my equation?
