A comparison between MMAE and SCEM for solving singularly perturbed linear boundary layer problems
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, we propose an efficient method so-called Successive Complementary Expansion Method (SCEM), that is based on generalized asymptotic expansions, for approximating to the solutions of singularly perturbed two-point boundary value problems. In this easy-applicable method, in contrast to the well-known method the Method of Matched Asymptotic Expansions (MMAE), any matching process is not required to obtain uniformly valid approximations. The key point: A uniformly valid approximation is adopted first, and complementary functions are obtained imposing the corresponding boundary conditions. An illustrative and two numerical experiments are provided to show the implementation and numerical properties of the present method. Furthermore, MMAE results are also obtained in order to compare the numerical robustnesses of the methods.
