I have the following PDE system to solve.
The variables are
vector R[z,t]={r_i[z,t]} subject to boundary condition R[z,t=0]=R0
scalar a[z,t] with boundary condition a[z=0,t]=f[t]
scalar b[z,t] with boundary condition b[z=L,t]=g[t]
(a and b are two laser pulses counter-propagating through a medium of
length L and the density of the medium - atomic populations - is
described by vector R, and i=1,..,4).
The equations to be solved subject to the above b.c. are:
d(r_i[z,t])/dt = Xi[ R[z,t], a[z,t], b[z,t] ]
d(a[z,t])/dz = F[ R[z,t], b[z,t] ]
d(b[z,t])/dz = G[ R[z,t], a[z,t] ]
where Xi, F, and G are linear functions.
I tried using NDSolve to solve the system but Mathematica doesn't
really recognize it as a PDE system. And I'm note sure that method of
lines is aplicable here since boundary conditions for fields a[z,t]
and b[z,t] are on the different sides of the medium. I know that
physically the problem is well-defined.
Is there perhaps any form of a differential-algebraic system that one
could do here to solve the system? Setup my own
difference-approximation acheme? Any other ideas?
Thanks,
