I found this useful beacuse the diffusion equation is so intuitive that the purpose of the Green's Function was manifeslty clear because like most readers of this forum, I already understood the mathematical details of the linear diffusion operator. But having said that, I found the actual utility of the Green's Function to be less that one might think. First one has to find the appropriate Green's Function, and then use it. Although the Greesn's Function contains the "essence" of the operator, I found it often easier to simply code up the equations and let 'er rip...
