In this paper, a matrix-collocation method which uses the Euler polynomials is introduced to find the approximate solutions of singularly perturbed two-point boundary-value problems (BVPs). A system of algebraic equations is obtained by converting the boundary value problem with the aid of the collocation points. After this algebraic system, the coefficients of the approximate solution are determined. This error analysis includes two theorems which consist of an upper bound of errors and an error estimation technique. The present method and error analysis are applied to three numerical examples of singularly perturbed two-point BVPs. Numerical examples and comparisons with other methods are given. These applications and comparisons show that the method gives effective results.
