The authors propose a numerical method based on a non-overlapping domain decomposition by using B-spline for singularly perturbed two-point boundary-value problems of the form

Recently, *R. K. Bawa* and *S. Natesan* in [Comput. Math. Appl. 50, No. 8–9, 1371–1382 (2005; Zbl 1084.65070)] devised a non-overlapping domain decomposition method for the singular perturbation problem stated above by using quintic spline.

In this article, the authors follow the same domain decomposition idea proposed by Bawa and Natesan [loc. cit.], and use B-splines instead of quintic splines. Error estimates are derived for the B-spline scheme following the same steps for the quintic spline scheme as given in Bawa and Natesan [loc. cit.]. Also, the numerical examples given here do not reflect any improvement of the proposed minor change suggested by the authors as the error estimates are of same order as obtained by Bawa and Natesan [loc. cit.].
