Two point boundary value problems for third order singularly perturbed ordinary differential equation in which the highest order derivative is multiplied by perturbation parameter ε was examined. Exponentially Fitted Collocation Approximate Method was
proposed and employed to assess the effect of perturbation parameter (ɛ) on the highest derivation of the singularly perturbed convection-diffusion equation. The perturbation parameter (ɛ) was varied from 0.5 to 0.1 and obtained the corresponding solutions of y(x). The results demonstrate that this method is very convenient for solving boundary value problems and also can be successfully apply to a lot of practical engineering and physical problems.
