  • Abstract

It is known that the solution of a singularly perturbed problem corresponds to the function with large gradients in a boundary layer. The application of Lagrange polynomial on a uniform mesh to interpolate such functions leads to large errors. To achieve the error estimates uniform with respect to a small parameter, we can use either a polynomial interpolation on a mesh which condenses in a boundary layer or we can use special interpolation formulas which are exact on a boundary layer component of the interpolating function. In this paper, we construct and study the formulas of numerical differentiation based on the interpolation formulas which are exact on a boundary layer component. We obtained the error estimates which are uniform with respect to a small parameter. Some numerical results validating the theoretical estimates are discussed.
