Hi,
because a0 is a function of t and you don't like to
tell Mathematica this, but:
Clear[a0]
k1 = 1/10;
k2 = 1/20;
a0[t_] := Which[
t < 0, 0,
0 <= t <= 200, 1/20,
200 <= t <= 600, 0,
600 <= t, 1/20]
ndsolution =
NDSolve[{b'[t] == -k2 b[t] y[t], x'[t] == -k1 a0[t] x[t] + k2 b[t]
y[t],
y'[t] == k1 *a0[t]x[t] - k2 b[t] y[t], b[0] == 1, x[0] == 1,
y[0] == 0}, {b, x, y}, {t, 0, 1000}]
work as expected.
Regards
Jens
