Abstract: We consider the non-classical heat equation in the $ n$-dimensional domain $ D=\mathbb{R}^{+}\times \mathbb{R}^{n-1}$ for which the internal energy supply depends on the heat flux on the boundary $ S=\partial D$. The problem is motivated by the modeling of temperature regulation in the medium. Using the Green function for the domain $ D$, the solution is found for an integral representation depending on the heat flux $ V$ on $ S$ which is an additional unknown of the problem. We obtain that $ V$ must satisfy a Volterra integral equation of second kind at time $ t$ with a parameter in $ \mathbb{R}^{n-1}$. Under some conditions on data, we show that there exists a unique local solution which can be extended globally in time. This work generalizes the results obtained in the one-dimensional case.
