English abstract:
We study the numerical solution of a singular free boundary problem for a second order nonlinear ordinary differential equation, where the differential operator is the degenerate m-Laplacian. A typical difficulty arising in free boundary problems is that the analytical solution may become non-smooth at one bound-ary or at both boundaries of the interval of integration. A numerical method proposed in [18] consists of two steps. First, a smoothing variable transformation is applied to the analytical problem in order to im-prove the smoothness of its solution. Then, the problem is discretized by means of a finite difference scheme.

Degenerate Laplacian, singular free boundary problem, smoothing variable substitution, collocation methods.
