Title: Boundary (and other) layers and how to approximate them

Abstract: In this talk we will give an overview of singularly perturbed

boundary value problems, focusing on the presence of boundary layers in

their solution. We will give examples from fluid and solid mechanics, and

discuss how one can approximate the solution to such problems, using

mainly the Finite Element Method.
