In this paper we discuss the construction of a spline function for a class of singular two-point boundary value problem
x −α( x α u′)= f (x, u), u(0)= A, u(1)= B, 0<α<1 or α=1,2. The boundary conditions may also be of the form u′(0)=0, u(1)= B. Three point finite difference methods, using the above splines, are obtained for the solution of the boundary value problem. These methods are of second order and are illustrated by four numerical examples. Subject Classifications AMS(MOS): 65L 10 CR: Gl.7 References
