Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I'm trying to solve, what I think are three coupled PDEs with NDSolve and it keeps giving me

NDSolve::ndode: Input is not an ordinary differential equation. >>

as an error. I don't quite understand why?

These are my PDEs for anyone that's interested. I will try to pretty them up in a separate post. I'm kind of in a rush right now.

Any suggestions/comments about this errors and my PDEs are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
