This paper analyzes a domain decomposition method for a linear singularly perturbed advection-diffusion equation. It is assumed that there are two subdomains, in one of which the diffusion terms may be ignored. The boundary condition used at the artificial interior interface depends on the direction of the characteristic curves. It is always required that the flux is continuous, but continuity of the solution is imposed only at the inflow portion of the subdomain in which the advection equation is solved. A numerical method involving iteration between the subdomains is introduced, and it is shown to converge, often in a finite number of steps. It is also shown that the solution may be obtained by a vanishing- viscosity argument.
