One-dimensional time-dependent numerical modelling of accretion disc boundary layers.

We present accretion disc boundary layer models calculated with the help of a time-dependent spectral numerical code. The code is described in some detail. The results help in understanding the physical cause for the difference between cool and hot boundary layer models obtained by recent numerical calculations. They support also the plausibility of models obtained by multi inner region asymptotic methods.
