Abstract: A solution to the problem of constant surface heating of an initially constant-temperature, $ T_0^*$, halfspace where the material in question has a temperature-dependent thermal conductivity is obtained. The thermal conductivity, $ {k^ * }$, is specifically given by $ {k^ * } = k_0^ * \exp \left[ {\lambda \left( {{T^ * } - T_0^ * } \right)/T_0^ * } \right]$. The solution is valid for both heating and cooling of the material where $ \lambda $ and $ k_0^ * $ are arbitrary in magnitude, and $ \lambda $ can be either positive or negative in sign.
