Abstract:

It has been frequently observed that the backward differentiation approximation of the solutions of Ex Fx f can fail to converge even pointwise in an initial boundary layer. This note shows that the approximations converge in a distributional sense even if the exact solution is also distributional. Keywords Matrices Convergence Approximation.
