Magnetic hyperthermia is a recent therapy used to treat cancer. It is based on the heating of magnetic nanoparticles under the effect of an alternating magnetic field. A mathematical study was considered the effect of heating magnetic nanoparticles to obtain an increase in the desired temperature while causing minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. We investigated the thermal response of different materials. An analytical resolution is proposed to solve the bio-heat transfer problem in a
