A number of nonlinear boundary value problems, arising in chemical reaction engineering, hydrodynamics, plasma physics and biology are proposed to serve as examples for testing of codes for solution of nonlinear boundary value problems. These examples cover a broad spectrum ranging from easy to extremely difficult problems.
