##### The Error Analysis of An Upwind Difference Approximation for a Singularly Perturbed Problem

**Authors:**
Jiming Yang

**Abstract:**

An upwind difference approximation is used for a singularly perturbed problem in material science. Based on the discrete Green-s function theory, the error estimate in maximum norm is achieved, which is first-order uniformly convergent with respect to the perturbation parameter. The numerical experimental result is verified the valid of the theoretical analysis.
