    Numerical solution of partial differential equation

    I need to solve the following system of equations for n=0,1,2 subject to the given initial and boundary conditions. Please give me some idea which numerical scheme I should use for better accuracy and how should I proceed for the numerical solution of this equation. The coupled boundary conditions are challenging for me. Please help.


    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial t}-\frac{\partial^2 C_n}{\partial r^2}-\frac{1}{r}\frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}=\beta n\, f(r,t)C_{n}
    \frac{\partial \zeta_n}{\partial t}-\frac{\partial^2\zeta_n}{\partial r^2}-\frac{1}{r}\frac{\partial \zeta_n}{\partial r}=\beta n \,g(r,t)\zeta_{n}


    C_n(0,r)=1


    \zeta_n(0,r)=1


    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}+\gamma C_n=0 \quad\mbox{at}\quad  r=a
    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}=\kappa \frac{\partial \zeta_n}{\partial r} \quad\mbox{at}\quad r=b
    C_n=\lambda\zeta_n \quad\mbox{at}\quad r=b
    \frac{\partial \zeta_n}{\partial r}=0 \quad\mbox{at}\quad r=0



    By using Crank Nicholson method and Thomas algorithm I can solve the following, but the above one gives trouble for me.
    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial t}-\frac{\partial^2 C_n}{\partial r^2}-\frac{1}{r}\frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}=\beta n\, f(r,t)C_{n}
    C_n(0,r)=1
    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}+\gamma C_n=0 \quad\mbox{at}\quad r=a
    \frac{\partial C_n}{\partial r}=0 \quad\mbox{at}\quad r=0
