English abstract:
We discuss the convergence behavior of collocation schemes applied to approximate solutions of BVPs in nonlinear
index 1 DAEs, which exhibit a critical point at the left boundary. Such a critical point of the DAE causes a singularity in
the inherent nonlinear ODE system. In particular, we focus on the case when the inherent ODE system is singular with a
singularity of the first kind and apply polynomial collocation to the original DAE system. We show that for a certain class
of well-posed boundary value problems in DAEs having a sufficiently smooth solution, the global error of the collocation
scheme converges in the collocation points with the so-called stage order. The theoretical results are supported by numerical
