The higher-order boundary condition on the boundary of free space is investigated for the space–time diffusion equation, and the resulting additional term of the solution is shown explicitly in terms of the Green function. The higher-order term of the solution is generally negligible, however, in the region where the diffusion approximation is applicable.
