In this paper, a class of linear parabolic systems of singularly perturbed second order differential equations of reaction-diffusion type with initial and Robin boundary conditions is considered. The components of the solution u⃗ of this system exhibit parabolic boundary layers with sublayers. A numerical method composed of a classical finite difference scheme on a piecewise uniform Shishkin mesh is suggested. This method is proved to be first order convergent in time and essentially first order convergent in the space variable in the maximum norm uniformly in the perturbation parameters

1 Introduction

A differential equation in which small parameters multiply the highest order derivative and some or none of the lower order derivatives is known as a singularly perturbed differential equation. In this paper, a class of linear parabolic singularly perturbed second order differential equation of reaction-diffusion type with initial and Robin boundary conditions is considered.

For a general introduction to parameter-uniform numerical methods for singular perturbation problems, see 11 , 12 , 18 and 19 . In 13 , a Dirichlet boundary value problem for a linear parabolic singularly perturbed differential equation is studied and a numerical method comprising of a standard finite difference operator on a fitted piecewise uniform mesh is considered and it is proved to be uniform with respect to the small parameter in the maximum norm. In 14 , a boundary-value problem for a singularly perturbed parabolic PDE with convection is considered on an interval in the case of the singularly perturbed Robin boundary condition is considered and using a defect correction technique, an ε-uniformly convergent schemes of high-order time-accuracy is constructed. The efficiency of the new defect-correction schemes is confirmed by numerical experiments. In 15 , a one-dimensional steady-state convection dominated convection-diffusion problem with Robin boundary conditions is considered and the numerical solutions obtained using an upwind finite difference scheme on Shishkin meshes are uniformly convergent with respect to the diffusion cofficient.
