Mathematical description:

 

 

The problem is

    \begin{eqnarray*} 	\lambda z'' = - z' - z^{2}, \;\;\;z(0) = 0, \;\;\; z(1) = \frac{1}{2} 	\end{eqnarray*}

with

    \[ 	z \in \mathbb{R} , \;\;\; t\in [0,1]. 	\]

We write this problem in first order form by defining y_1=z and y_2=z', yielding a system of differential equations of the form

    \begin{equation*} 	\left(\begin{array}{c} 	y_1\\ 	y_2 	\end{array}\right)'= 	\left(\begin{array}{c} 	y_2\\ 	\frac{1}{\lambda}f(y_1,y_2) 	\end{array}\right), 	\end{equation*}

where

    \begin{equation*} 	f(z,z') = - z' - z^{2}, 	\end{equation*}

with

    \[ 	(y_1,y_2)^T \in \mathbb{R}^{2} , \;\;\; t \in [0,1]. 	\]

The boundary conditions are obtained from

    \begin{equation*} 	\left( 	\begin{array}{cc} 	1 & 0 \\ 	0 & 0 \\ 	\end{array} 	\right) 	\left(\begin{array}{c} 	y_{1}(0)\\ 	y_{2}(0) 	\end{array}\right) 	+ 	\left( 	\begin{array}{cc} 	0 & 0 \\ 	1 & 0 \\ 	\end{array} 	\right) 	\left(\begin{array}{c} 	y_{1}(1)\\ 	y_{2}(1) 	\end{array}\right)=\left(\begin{array}{c} 	0 \\ 	\frac{1}{2} 	\end{array}\right). 	\end{equation*}

The solution has a boundary layer near t = 0.
