English abstract:
We consider a coupled system of two singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion equations in one dimension. Associated with the two singular perturbation parameters $0 < \varepsilon \leq \mu \leq 1$, are boundary layers of length scales $O(\varepsilon)$ and $O(\mu)$.
We propose and analyze an $hp$ finite
element scheme which includes elements of size $O(\e p)$ and $O(\mu p)$ near the boundary, where $p$ is the degree of the approximating polynomials.
We show that under the
assumption of analytic input data, the method yields \emph{exponential} rates of convergence, independently of $\varepsilon$ and $\mu$ and independently of the relative size of $\varepsilon$ to $\mu$.
In particular, the full range $0 < \varepsilon \leq \mu \leq 1$ is covered by our analysis.
Numerical computations supporting the theory are also presented.
