This thesis is a study of the classical and weighted heat equations, with a detailed examination of solutions for a particular case of the weighted equation. This particular case Involves the substitution of a weighting factor into the equation which reduces it to Legendre's differential equation. Several methods of finding solutions for this particular case are given, along with solutions computed using the given techniques.
