Chromatographic process, where only the curvature of the distribution isotherm
determines the shape of the peaks while other
peak-broadening processes are neglected.
The assumption of ideal, non-linear (INL) chromatography
often made in order to facilitate theoretical treatments. It can be
justified in cases of efficient columns and distribution isotherms with
