This paper surveys and reviews papers of spline solution of singular boundary value problems. Among a number of numerical methods used to solve two-point singular boundary value problems, spline methods provide an efficient tool. Techniques collected in this paper include cubic splines, non-polynomial splines, parametric splines, B-splines and TAGE method.
