## Abstract:

We consider a boundary element collocation method for the heat equation. As trial functions we use the tensor products of continuous piecewise linear splines with collocation at the nodal points. Convergence and stability is proved in the case where the spatial domain is a disc. Moreover, practical implementation is discussed in some detail. Numerical experiments confirm our results.## References
