Consider the singular perturbed boundary value problem with turning point \(\epsilon^ 2u''+xb(x,u)u'+c(x,u)=0,\quad x\in [-1,1],\) \((u(- 1),u(1))=(A,B),\) where \(\epsilon >0\) is a small parameter, b and c are sufficiently smooth functions, A and B given constants. A finite difference scheme is employed to solve the problem numerically. A special nonequidistant mesh can be chosen which improves the convergence in numerical experiments.
