The special feature of Mathematica in directly manipulating complex numbers is used to find the temperature oscillations in a slug flow inside a circular tube, subjected to a periodically varying inlet temperature. Mathematica inputs used are as simple as possible. Examples show how to obtain the temperature oscillations in any desired location of the channel.
