Abstract: Uniform $\mathcal {O}({h^2})$ convergence is proved for the El-Mistikawy-Werle discretization of the problem $- \varepsilon u”+ au’+ bu = f$ on (0,1), $u(0) = A$, $u(1) = B$, subject only to the conditions $a,b,f \in {\mathcal {W}^{2,\infty }}[0,1]$ and $a(x) > 0, 0 \leq x \leq 1$. The principal tools used are a certain representation result for the solutions of such problems that is due to the author [Math. Comp., v. 48, 1987, pp. 551-564] and the general stability results of Niederdrenk and Yserentant [Numer. Math., v. 41, 1983, pp. 223-253]. Global uniform $\mathcal {O}(h)$ convergence is proved under slightly weaker assumptions for an equivalent Petrov-Galerkin formulation.
