In this paper, we investigate an initial-boundary value problem for a partial differential equation with a complex constant coefficient and non-local-boundary conditions whose related spectral problem is a non-self-adjoint-boundary value problem. For this problem, we first derive the related spectral problem. Then the formal and analytical solution were formulated by using eigenfunctions of the related spectral problem. Finally, the existence, uniqueness and convergence of the series solution will be proved.
