    okay: 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

    i got the value for dp/dt with the function :pt = D[(1./(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) Exp[ -x^2/(4 t)], t]

    dx = D[(1./(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) Exp[ -x^2/(4 t)], {x, 2}] is there soemthign wrong with my equation?

    so are you trying to solve differential equation or take second derivative?

    D[(1./(Sqrt[4 Pi t])) * Exp[ -x^2/(4 t)], {x, 2}]

    ./ is not used in mathematica, it is matlab notation
