An efficient numerical algorithm is described for solving problems with coupled nonlinear differential equations with boundary conditions applied at opposite ends of the medium. It is applied to a problem of optical bistability with coupled Maxwell equations and heat‐flow equations, and associated boundary conditions. It is shown that the numerical procedure is well suited to perform a stability analysis of the solution.
