Abstract: A class of singularly perturbed quasilinear differential equations with discontinuous data is examined. In general, interior layers will appear in the solutions of problems from this class. A numerical method is constructed for this problem class, which involves an appropriate piecewise-uniform mesh. The method is shown to be a parameter-uniform numerical method with respect to the singular perturbation parameter. Numerical results are presented, which support the theoretical results.
