Abstract:

A rational function is presented for approximating the function fz coth z - 1z that appears in several exponentially fitted or weighted finite difference and finite element methods for convection-diffusion problems. The approximation is less expensive to evaluate than fz and provides greater accuracy than the doubly asymptotic approximation when z 01.
