A singularly perturbed advection-diffusion two-point Robin boundary
value problem whose solution has a single boundary layer is considered. Based
on the piecewise linear polynomial approximation, the finite element
method is applied to the problem. Estimation of the error between solution and the
finite element approximation is given in energy norm on shishkin-type mesh.
