Uniform Difference Scheme on the Singularly Perturbed System


This paper is concerned with the numerical solution for singular perturbation system of two coupled second ordinary differential equations with initial and boundary conditions, respectively. Fitted finite difference scheme on a uniform mesh, whose solution converges pointwise independently of the singular perturbation parameter is constructed and analyzed.
