6.Although this solution for the diffusion is obtained by a straightforward application of the Laplace transform, the author is unaware of any direct reference to it. The initial equations for a hemispherical contact are ; ; at , ; , at , ; where The solution is obtained simply by making the transformation and then applying the Laplace transformation. In this way, one obtains finally . It can be verified that this obeys the initial equations. For it reduces to Eq. (34).
