Abstract: Stability criteria are derived for the explicit difference schemes appropriate to the following problems: 1) heat conduction in a slab in contact with a well stirred liquid; 2) heat conduction in a slab radiating to one face of a thin slab with infinite thermal conductivity, the other face of which radiates into a medium at prescribed temperature; 3) heat conduction in a cylinder radiating to the inner surface of a thin coaxial cylindrical shell with infinite thermal conductivity, the outer surface of which radiates into a medium at prescribed temperature.
