(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

6 1st order, nonlinear PDEs in one space and one time variable.

6 variables are function of space and time: a, b, c, d, e f

2. The attempt at a solution

Method of lines - Discretize in space. Turns system of PDEs into a much larger system of ODEs. The time term remains untouched (not discretized). Solve the ODEs using Matlab solver, ode15s.

3. Roadblock

Two of the equations do not have time-dependent derivatives in them. How do I enforce this?
