Abstract. In this paper we generate fitted mesh using the boundary characteristic orthogonal polynomials for numerically solving singularly perturbed boundary value problems. The method is based upon the orthogonal collocation method. Boundary characteristic orthogonal polynomials (BCOPs) are generated using the Gram - Schmit process from a set of linearly independent functions which also satisfy the given boundary conditions. The procedure is illustrated by taking several examples. After obtaining the fitted mesh, the problems have been solved using upwind finite difference method.
