Abstract: We investigate the convergence properties of single and multiple shooting when applied to singular boundary value problems. Particular attention is paid to the well-posedness of the process. It is shown that boundary value problems can be solved efficiently when a high order integrator for the associated singular initial value problems is available. Moreover, convergence results for a perturbed Newton iteration are discussed.
