Error Estimates for the Difference Method to System of Ordinary Differential Equations with Boundary Layer


This work deals with the numerical solution of singular perturbation system of ordinary differential equations with boundary layer. For the numerical solution of this problem fitted finite difference scheme on a uniform mesh is constructed and analyzed. The uniform error estimates for the approximate solution are obtained.
