A convection-dominated singularly perturbed two-point boundary problem is considered. For the numerical analysis of such problems, it is necessary to prove certain a priori bounds on the derivatives of its solution. This paper provides a survey of the ways in which such bounds can be proved, while assessing the feasibility of extending such proofs to convection-dominated partial differential equations, and also introduces a new proof based on a classical finite-difference argument of Brandt.
