Abstract: We categorize some of the finite-difference methods that can be used to treat the initial-value problem for the boundary-layer differential equation

The idea of relating to allows us to study the nature of the difference equation for very small . We can, however, look at this in another way. Given a differential equation in the form of Eq. (1) we ask how can we choose so that the associated difference equation will give an accurate approximation. If is sufficiently small, choose by the formula where .
