Jn being, as usual, the symbol of Bezel's function of order n.    For, if be even,
cos n
=       COS ?i^|r COS   l    COS
and, if ?i be odd, cos n
= - i     cos 9i-v^ sin (^'p cos
In either case
Thus and (24) becomes
cos 7i
= 2?r cos nO In (of), ............... (29)
This gives the temperature at time t and place (p, z) due to an init instantaneous source distributed over the circle a.
The solution (30) may now be used to find the effect of the initial soui expressed by (22). For this purpose we replace q by a da, and introdi the  additional factor Jn (lea), subsequently integrating with respect k between the limits 0 and GO . Comparing the result with that expressed (20), (23), we see that
is a common factor which divides out, and that there remains the identity
 ......... (31
This agrees with the formula given by Weber, which  thus receives interesting interpretation.
Keverting to (30), we recognize that it must satisfy the fundamei equation (1), now taking the form
_      ____. ~d#    dp*-    p dp + pn- dfr ~ dt'
and that when t = 0 v must vanish, unless also z = 0, p  a.                              r
