This paper refers to mathematical modelling and numerical analysis. The analysis to be presented through this paper deals with Robin’s problem which boundary equation is a linear combination of Dirichlet and Neumann-type boundary condi-tions. For this purpose we proved the existence and uniqueness of the solution. It is worth noting that the implementation of numerical simulations depends on the type of problem since it requires a search for explicit solution. Consequently, the motivation exists in this paper for choosing a classical method of variation of constants and employing a finite difference method to find the exact and numerical solutions, respectively so that numerical simulations were implemented in Scilab.
