Suppose I am dealing with the heat equation: ∂T/∂t=α∂^2T/∂x^2 and I have some data which I want to fit it to and determine the best value for α.
I can follow the general instructions for optimisation but how do I do it for a PDE such as this?

Usually the sum of differences squared between experimental and simulated data is minimized with respect to a fitting parameter (in your case "alpha").
