In this paper we provide a new (probabilistic) proof of a classical result in partial differential equations, viz. if ϕ is a tempered distribution, then the solution of the heat equation for the Laplacian, with initial condition ϕ, is given by the convolution of ϕ with the heat kernel (Gaussian density). Our results also extend the probabilistic representation of solutions of the heat equation to initial conditions that are arbitrary tempered distributions.
