A uniformly accurate finite volume discretization for a convection-diffusion problem

Dirk Wollstein, Torsten Linss, and Hans-Görg Roos


A singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problem is considered. The problem is discretized using an inverse-monotone finite volume method on Shishkin meshes. We establish first-order convergence in a global energy norm and a mesh-dependent discrete energy norm, no matter how small the perturbation parameter. Numerical experiments support the theoretical results.
