34, Ekaterinburg, Russian Federation. Tel.: +7 (343) 375 35 92; fax: 3745330 Two mathematical models of diffusion are discussed as applied to the description of ion nitriding of austenitic stainless steel in electron beam plasma. One model is based on the assumption of the diffusion coefficient dependent on concentration, and this corresponds to the nonlinear boundary value problem of diffusion. The other model takes into account the effect of internal stresses, occurring in the surface layer

Algorithms for solving the boundary value problems are proposed, which are based on the boundary element method. Model examples have been solved to illustrate the functioning of the algorithms.
