The Laplace transform in time provides an alternative to the finite difference method for the solution of diffusion problems using the boundary element method. The advantage is that the Laplace transform method does not require a large number of boundary element solutions, as do finite difference methods, to satisfy stability criteria. The process is ideally suited to parallel computation on a distributed memory architecture since there is no interprocessor communication required during the solution process. An implementation on a transputer network verifies this with almost linear speed- up.
