I found something close to what I need, but in another system: PDE := n*(diff(h(theta, phi, t), t)) = (diff(K*(diff(h(theta, phi, t), theta)), theta))/(r^2*sin(phi)^2)+(diff(K*sin(phi)*(diff(h(theta, phi, t), phi)), phi))/(r^2*sin(phi)) ; sol := pdsolve(PDE, h(theta, phi, t)); but I really want to do it with Mathematica, as my other system's license will expire soon and only Mathematica will be available in my place. Any ideas how I can convert this into Mathematica? thanks.
