This book presents an \(hp\)-finite element method for singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion equations on curvilinear polygons in the plane, and it gives a thorough analysis of the accuracy of the method. Anisotropic grids are used in the boundary layers, and geometrically graded grids in the corner layers. The theory is complicated by the fact that the error estimates are uniform with respect to the perturbation parameter \(\varepsilon\), the mesh size \(h\), and the order \(p\) of the finite elements.
