How can I to resolve the unidirectional heat transmission for a plate
o slab:


NDSolve[{a D[u[x,t],{x,2}]==D[u[x,t],t],
u[L,0]==600,  (* Initial value: the plate has the same temperature *)
(D[u[x,t],x]/.x->0)==0  (* Max. in centre *)
(D[u[x,t],x]/.x->L)==(-hc/k)(u[L,t]-600)    (* Q convection = Q
conduction *)
u[L,t]==u[-L,t]},  (* Temper. symetric *)

NDSolve::ivone: Boundary values may only be specified for one \
independent variable. Initial values may only be specified at one \
value of the other independent variable. >>

Where is my error?
