Parameter-uniform fitted operator B-spline collocation method for self-adjoint singularly perturbed two-point boundary value problems

Mohan K. Kadalbajoo and Devendra Kumar


In this paper, we develop a B-spline collocation method for the numerical solution of a self-adjoint singularly perturbed boundary value problem of the form \[-\epsilon(a(x)y')'+b(x)y(x)=f(x),\quad a(x)\geq a^*>0,\;b(x)\geq b^*>0,\;a'(x)\geq 0,\quad y(0)=\alpha,\quad y(1)=\beta.\] We construct a fitting factor and use the B-spline collocation method, which leads to a tridiagonal linear system. The method is analyzed for parameter-uniform convergence. Several numerical examples are reported which demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed method.
