### A simple hello word in FEniCS?

I am trying to start using FEniCS, but have a problem with the simple hello world examples given in the books. Could you please give me the simplest hello world example for solving the Fick's second law.

$\frac{\partial c}{\partial t}=D\frac{\partial^2c}{\partial x^2}$ct =D2cx2

How can we apply the boundary condition to the simplest example of FEniCS for solving this PDE (e.g., drawing the concentration profiles at given times)?

you can do something like this:
from fenics import *

mesh = UnitSquareMesh(20,20)
D  = 1.0
V = FunctionSpace(mesh, 'CG', 1)
# for previous solution
W_ = Function(V)
#------------------------------------------------------
#  Classes
#------------------------------------------------------

class Left(SubDomain):
def inside(self,x,on_boundary):
tol = 1e-10
return (near(x[0],0.0)) and on_boundary
left = Left()
#--------------------------------------------------------------
# Applying BC
#--------------------------------------------------------------
lc =  DirichletBC(V,Constant(1.0),left)
bc_c = [lc]

#---------------------------------------------------
# time steps...
#---------------------------------------------------
deltaT = 1e-3
t_ini = 0
t_fin = 0.5

t = 0
dt = 1e-3
u,v = TrialFunction(V), TestFunction(V)
du = Function(V)
while t < t_fin:
- (1./deltaT)*v*W_ )*dx

solve(lhs(F)==rhs(F), du, bc_c)

W_.assign(du)
t+=dt
plot(du, key = 'du', title = '%f' %(t))
