Two-point boundary value problems with piecewise constant coefficients: weak solution and exact discretization

For two-point boundary value problems in weak formulation with piecewise constant coefficients and piecewise continuous right-hand side functions we derive a representation of its weak solution by local Green's functions. Then we use it to generate exact three-point discretizations by Galerkin's method on essentially arbitrary grids. The coarsest possible grid is the set of points at which the piecewise constant coefficients and the right- hand side functions are discontinuous. This grid can be refined to resolve any solution properties like boundary and interior layers much more correctly. The proper basis functions for the Galerkin method are entirely defined by the local Green's functions. The exact discretizations are of completely exponentially fitted type and stable. The system matrices of the resulting tridiagonal systems of linear equations are in any case irreducible M-matrices with a uniformly bounded norm of its inverse.
