NDSolve[] can not solve elliptic problems, you 
must use the time dependent
solution and compute the limit t->Infinity

| Hello,
| although Mathematica solves my coupled system of 
three partial
| differential equations (depending on one spatial 
variable and time)
| I can unfortunately not get it to solve the 
steady-state version
| of the above equations, i.e. only depending on 
one spatial variable.
| I reduced it to a simple diffusion equation, but 
still it does not work.
| My Input is like:
| dcb=0.001;
| rcb=1000;
| gen=5e20;
| ab=2000;
| d=0.001;
| sol=nc/.First[NDSolve[
| {0==dcb*nc(2)[x]+gen*Exp[-ab*x]-rcb*(nc-nc0),
| nc[0]==nc0,nc(1)[d]==0},nc,{x,0,d}]]
| wherein nc(i)[x] stands for the i-th spatial 
derivative of nc[x].
| I don´t understand why Mathematica does not 
accept this.
| Could you please help?
| Regards,
| Uli
