1. Consider a boundary value problem (this is the same equation as the #5 on HW 7)
εy + y = 0, 0 < ε

1,

y(0) = 0, y(1) = 1.
(a) Show that the regular perturbation method fails.
(b) Use the singular perturbation method to ﬁnd the leading order uniform asymptotic approximations.
2. Use the dominant balancing method to determine the leading-order behavior of the
roots of
εx3 + x − 2 = 0, 0 < ε
1.
3. Find the leading order uniform approximation to
εy + ex y = 1, y(0) = 1, y(∞) = 0.
(Hint : Taylor series of ex )
4. Find the leading order uniform approximation to
εy + (

)y + εy = 0, 0 < x < 1, 0 < ε
1+x
y(0) = 0, y(1) = 1.
