Boundary Value Problems
If mixing, diffusion, and conduction are neglected, then the system is described by the so called plug flow model, expressed in terms of initial value ODEs, i.e., by initial value problems, or IVPs.
If the model accounts for the effects of axial dispersion, then the system is described by an axial dispersion model in terms of two-point boundary ODEs, i.e., by boundary value problems, or BVPs.
