## pdsolve not returning anything...

Trying to solve the 1-dimensional heat equation with maple with constant boundary temperatures:

restart;

with(PDETools):
U := diff_table(u(x,t)):
pde := U[t]=U[x,x];
bc := u(0, t) =0, u(1, t) = 1, u(x,0)=x;
pdsolve([pde,bc]);

The solution of this equation is u(x,t)=x , but pdsolve(...) does not return anything at all! What is going wrong? Is it too hard PDE for maple? And if it is too hard, where can be found the types of equations, which are too hard and not too hard? Thank you.

## PDSolve in Maple 11...

Maple 11

I'm trying to execute the program, which can be found here http://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=examples/pdsolve_boundaryconditions , but it does not work. I copied exactly what is written there:

restart; with(PDEtools):
U := diff_table(u(x,t)):
pde[1] := U[t]+c*U[x]=-lambda*U[];
bc[1] := eval(U[], t=0) = phi(x);
sys[1] := [pde[1], bc[1]];
pdsolve(sys[1]);

But after last command it just sais that

Error, (in pdsolve/sys/info) found functions with same name but depending on different arguments in the given DE system: [u(x,t), u(x,0)]

What's wrong?
