A matrix formalism is developed to facilitate computation of temperature distribution in the steady state in the interior of a multi-layered earth. The idealized model consists of homogeneous and isotropic layers of constant (but arbitrary) values of heat production as well as thermal conductivities. The known surface data is continued by this method to define the thermal structure at any desired point of the interior for planar and spherical stratification. Extension of the problem to the unsteady flow conditions has been presented.
