Exercise 4. Let D ⊂ Rd be a bounded domain with a smooth boundary and consider the
heat equation with Neumann boundary conditions:

ut − ∆u = f (x)
in D
(1a)
∇u · n
ˆ=0
on ∂D
(1b)
From the divergence theorem and (1b) we find that

∇ · (∇u) dx =

0 · dS(x)
∂D

= 0.
We can rewrite (1a) as ∆u = ut − f (x) and, noting that the Laplacian ∆ ≡ ∇ · ∇, take
volume integrals over D on all terms such that

If f (x) is strictly positive (i.e. always a source, never a sink), then we find with the boundary
conditions (1b) that

Thus the solution to (1), u = u(t, x), is strictly growing over time in D. From this we can
claim that
Z
u(t, x) dx = +∞ .
