Boundary value problems for singularly perturbed semilinear elliptic equations are considered. Special piecewise-uniform meshes are constructed which yield accurate numerical solutions irrespective of the value of the small parameter. Numerical methods composed of standard monotone finite difference operators and these piecewise-uniform meshes are shown theoretically to be uniformly (with respect to the singular perturbation parameter) convergent. Numerical results are also presented, which indicate that in practice the method is first-order accurate.
