It is well known that the 1-dimensional heat equation $$\frac{\partial}{\partial t} u(x,t)=a\cdot\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x^2} {u(x,t)}$$ has the fundamental solution $$K(x,t)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{4\pi a t}} \ \exp\left(-\frac{x^2}{4at}\right)$$.

**My question**

I am looking for English or German references for an easy derivation of this particular solution which are comprehensible to undergraduates.
