and p is the Laplace transform variable. Eqs. (10) and (11) give the transforms of the temperature and heat flow at any point z1, z2, ..., zm. Values for intermediate points can then be found from

T*(z,p) = rjcoshq (z - z.)] - -Q— sinh[q. (z - z.)] (12)


Exact evaluation of T and Q leads to rather complicated series of expansions; for shortness, below we present the solution for a homogeneous slab only
