AB - In the paper a solution of the inverse heat conduction problem with the Neumann boundary condition is presented. For finding this solution the homotopy perturbation method is applied. Investigated problem consists in calculation of the temperature distribution in considered domain, as well as in reconstruction of the functions describing the temperature and the heat flux on the boundary, in case when the temperature measurements in some points of the domain are known. An example confirming usefulness of the homotopy perturbation method for solving problems of this kind are also included.
