A numerical algorithm for singular perturbation problems exhibiting weak boundary layers. (English) Zbl 1036.65065

This paper is concerned with a class of singularly perturbed two-point boundary-value problems for second order ordinary differential equations. The domain is decomposed in two subdomains which leads to two boundary value problems: the first one is a layer domain problem and the second one is a regular domain problem. Numerical results are presented and error estimates are derived.
