We write the fundamental solution as Rx sinh
Y(x) = cosh Rx cosh Rx :
From (7.1.2a), the solution of this BVP has the form Rx sinh
y(x) = cosh Rx cosh Rx c + ;10 :
The initial and terminal conditions (7.1.3) are c1 + ;1=R2 = 0 :
cosh R sinh R
and the solution of the BVP is 1
c = R2 1 1;cosh R
sinh R 1
y(x) = R2 cosh Rx cosh Rx
Di culties arise when R

sinh R =R2 :

boundary layers near both ends.
When Rx is large, we would not be able to distinguish between sinh Rx and cosh Rx
and, instead of the exact result, we would compute
y(x) 1 eRx eRx c + ;10
2e e x > 0: The matrix Y(x) would be singular in this case. With small discernable di erences
between sinh Rx and cosh Rx, Y would be ill-conditioned. Assuming this to be so, let's
write the solution as
eRx (1 +
